I populate a combobox in Flash with names from a mySQL database.
When I do this the swedish special characters appear like black lined rects instead of their correct appearance.
The characters are (å, ä, ö) and eg. å is in html encoded like this
If I type in eg. åt as the label and 1 as the data then its shown correct but when its populated from a database with PHP/mySQL something seems to go wrong.
How do I solve this problem?
