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.

Did you move from Windows to Linux or vice versa?

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.

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