can't read my hanzi files with firefox


I can read the hanzi from different chinese websites, however when I try to
read my own files with firefox I only get weird characters.
As an example, I have written some characters in a file called test.txt
available at http://www.besnard.org/~besnard/test.txt

the 'file' utility says:
$file test.txt
test.txt: UTF-8 Unicode text

a screenshot in gedit:

a screenshot of the file once open in firefox:

Again, I generally have no problems browsing chinese simplified characters
while browsing website with Firefox.

Another interesting phenomenon:
if I download a webpage in chinese (e.g http://www.china.com/index.html) and
then open it with gedit, then all the chinese characters look as weird as the
above mentioned one's I get in Firefox.
