Warning message about character set

When I click the system Info button from the VirtualMin console, I get the following message:

Detected that you are using non-unicode character set, which is not recommended. Strange  character might appear in text-editor mode and/or other encoding issues are going to happen.
Change language in Webmin Configuration to en.UTF-8 and make sure, that your browser also detected it correctly.
Pay attention, that Webmin in-built module, named Change Language and Theme can override global settings.

The reason that this is strange is that:

  • When I clicked the 'Webmin Configuration' configuration button in the message, it showed that UTF-8 is set
  • When I checked Webmin->Change Language and Theme, it shows UTF-8
  • When I checked /etc/httpd/cond/https.conf, it shows UTF-8

My system is running CentOS 6.8 and I have not noticed any problems. What should I do in order to resolve this issue?
