I started to learn CGI and wrote his first script. I have a problem with
charset of webpage. Referenceing to man help I wrote following code:
use encoding 'utf8';
use CGI qw(:standard);
print header(-type=>'text/html', -charset=>'UTF-8');
print start_html('Simple example'),
h1('Simple example'), end_html();
The problem is that a browser gets the generated webpage with a wrong
charset. What do I make wrong?
header of webpage is:
PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml " lang="en-US" xml:lang="en-US">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
I have sent this letter here, because my letters don't come to
perl.beginners.cgi. Does anyone know why so?
Re: problem with charset
I'm not able to reproduce that behavior. However, the meta charset can
be set explicitly with the -encoding argument.
-title => 'Simple example',
-encoding => 'utf8',
