Character set displaying properly on local, not on test

Hello,

Two images attached, one from my local host and Arabic is properly displayed.  The other from my test server, which does have Arabic character set installed, will not display correctly.

Any ideas?

I'm thinking you want to look for a META tag like this one...
<META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-TYPE" content="text/html;CHARSET=iso-8859-1" />

There is a character encoding mis-match from the header and my meta tag, see validation link below.

How do I adjust the HTTP header information?

Try this... Throw out the meta tag and see what happens.

Not sure if it was a combination of validation errors or php sending a different header, i force the utf-8 http header and corrected the errors, and now its working!

Great!  Glad you got it working.  Inconsistent character sets cause all kinds of strange things, and that issue sometimes includes the data base, as well.

Thanks for the points, ~Ray
