Linux Character Sets

hi,

i have a linux server for hosting various websites.

on some of my webpages '?' are being displayed. seems to not recognise certain characters

it also doesn't recognise the € character in any of my pages. i've replaced it with € but would like to be able to use €

anyone know what settings i need to change??

thanks

you need to configure the webserver to allow certain character sets. if you use apache, there is an AddCharset directive.

ISO-8859-15 is virtually identical to the default apache charset, and includes the euro sign.

AddCharset ISO-8859-15 .iso8859-15 .latin9

Your html pages should declare the char set that they are using (they are doing that aren't they?). Validate your html here:

HTH:)
