GBC: Special characters & umlauts problems

Thu Dec 08, 2005 6:47 am

Please look at this example:


On both Firefox & IE, special characters incl. umlauts appeared totally trashed. I tried to investigate the problem, and found out the characters appear correctly if UTF-8 is selected MANUALLY in browser.
Auto-select does not work, as it will always use the meta tags.

The problem are the web pages themselves, which include
[meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"], thus forcing iso-8859-1. Downloading one of your pages and changing the meta tag by hand made auto-select work again.

Thanks for the reminder.

I already reported that problem to our webmin weeks (months?) ago but he seems to be busy with life!
