Re: ISO CHARSET PROBLEM
I just got my crystal ball back from repairment and maintenance*), so I
can see that your page is UTF-8 encoded but your browser interprets it
as ISO-8859-1 encoded. The Apache server might have been misconfigured
to claim that the page is ISO-8859-1, or it might send no information
about encoding, in which case your browser makes a (wrong) guess. The
solution is to make the server send the right information, typically by
creating a .htaccess file with the lines
AddType text/html;charset=utf-8 HTML
AddType text/html;charset=utf-8 HTM
into the directory of your WWW files, assuming that your all HTML
documents are and will be UTF-8 encoding. Alternative, recode the page
to be in ISO-8859-1 and check the .htaccess file accordingly.
*) That was subtle irony about your failure to provide a URL that could
have been used to find out the page where the problem appears.
