How to ensure US browsers can see a Scandinavian char in a blog post?

A friend of mine is a blogger in the US. We're thinking about a blog post in which he would use the Scandinavian letter Ä a few times ( & a u m l ; ). My concern is whether his primarily American readers will see the letter on their screen, or something entirely different.

My limited understanding is that in the past you had to define in the header that a UTF charset was being used on whatever page that got displayed on. Is this still mandatory today? I would prefer it if we didn't have to mess with his site's header data just for the purpose of this one post. I don't have any access to those files.
I am Finnish myself so obviously I can see it just fine on my system.
