Hello!

Please be patient with me. English is not my main language.

I have a big problem in Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 with my countries special chars.
Our spec. chrs are á,é,í,ó,ö,ő,ú,ü,ű

When I save a document every other characters (even other special chars) are okey, but Q and q will be o and u after saving my document.

This is really annoy me. I've read a lot of forums in my country, but I can't find any solution.

When I go to "Edit > Preferences > Fonts" and no document is open, Font Settings: Unicode
If I change this, and I reopen this window it will be on Unicode again. I can't change it.

When I go to "Edit > Preferences > Fonts" and my documents are open, Font Settings: "Nyugat-európai" (means Western European)
If I change this, and I reopen this window it will be "Nyugat-európai" (Western European) again. I can't change it.

It should be: "Közép-Európai" (means Central European) but every time I change it, it reverts to this defaults.

Please help me!

I have to reopen every file in Notepad and rewrite the &#337,ű chars.

Thanks!

EDIT: EE can't display correctly these two characters either...

Hi Collis_Dam,

From Dreamweaver, do Edit | Preferences | New Document and set the Default Encoding to whatever you wish it to be.  That will set the default for all new documents in Dreamweaver.

For the existing pages, you will need to open them and do Modify | Page Properties | Title/Encoding to set the encoding as you desire.

You're welcome!  I don't care so much about the point totals anymore so don't worry about it...
