Five languages in story - Help needed

I'm converting a story with 5 languages, German, French, Polish, English, and Czech. I tried converting with unicode but the Polish language has percent signs in place of letters and looks funny.

I'm not sure if I need to change my metadata in the HTML header from this...

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

to something else? or if I need to embedd the font in some manner?

I'd appreciate any advice or help.

thanks!

EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm making a mobi/epub/and lrf file for this story.

I'll try that!

I think what makes it complicated is that I got the story in RTF and I just noticed the polish characters are messed up there too. I'll have to see if the original html file has the correct characters.
