My pages are not displaying the é character properly.  My application works fine on other servers but not on this server (new hosting company).

I'm running apache 2.0.  Please help.  Thank you.

I moved from windows to linux.

My dev box is also linux and works fine.  The production box is linux and doesn't work, I'm thinking it's an apache issue.

I suspect the Character Set isn't properly defined.  Look at the following possibilities:

CharsetDefault
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_charset_lite.html#charsetdefault

CharsetSourceEnc
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_charset_lite.html#charsetsourceenc

How are you defining the character?  Are you using the unicode of è or are you copying and pasting from a word document?
