Default encoding problem with arabic character

Dear Sir,
i am facing a problem with encoding for arabic characters.
here is the code:

<script type="text/javascript">
var AJAX = {
  initialize: function(){
    var xmlHTTP;
    try{xmlHTTP = new XMLHttpRequest();}
      try{xmlHTTP = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");}
        try{xmlHTTP = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");}
          alert("Your browser does not support AJAX!");
          return false;
    return xmlHTTP;

  get: function(url, func){
    var obj = this.initialize();
    obj.open('GET', url, true);
    obj.onreadystatechange = function(){
      if(obj.readyState == 4){

function getUpdate(txt){
  document.getElementById('getReturn').innerHTML = txt;

<input type="text" id="test" name="test" value="blah" onkeyup="AJAX.get('test.php?x=' + this.value, getUpdate)" />
<div id="getReturn"></div>


header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8');

echo $_GET['x'];

if i put english character then there is no problem.
ie. input: f f f output: f f f
but if i put arabic character then i got error.
i.einput: #213; #213; #213;
output:? ? ?

so can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
