Hello

I am using Fedora Core 1, and foreign characters are not displaying correctly on webpages (htm, html, php, etc)

Jos� Luis L�pez Nu?es
instead of
José Luis López Nuñes

I first though it was a MySQL related issue as I first noticed this issue in data base driven sites and in fact some errors did correct after editing php.ini uncommenting the line

default-charset = "iso-8859-1"

but there are still problems with foreign characters even on simple html pages.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Cecilia Martinez

It could/should be an apache/webserver issue.

have a look at "mod_mime-defaults.conf" and define there your charset also.

I think it was to add something like "AddDefaultCharset ISO-8859-1"
