Hello!   everyone,

I have a trouble of proper character display about "ç", ce-cedieu when I uploaded a WEB page onto a server.   The WEB page looked fine at the local PC/Mac, but not after WEB-server.   Then in case, I added the HTML code, <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />

It didn't solve the problem.   What do you think?

    Thank you, Roonaan.   What I want is to take a control of all ISO-Latin (ISO-8859-1) in global manner.   I think there is a way, because when I upload my file to a certain Server, it displays extended ASCII characters as I wanted.   While when I uploaded to another Server, it couldn't display correctly.  

    So, I am thinking this is a WEB-Server issue, rather than HTML grammar issue.   So, I may close this post soon to open another WEB-Server question about this.    What do you think about my observation?

    You can take control of the iso-8859-1 by using a <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-885901" /> I think.
