IIS server issue, encoding HTML.
I have a web site with HTML files produced by Dreamweaver. It works fine and displays correctly as a simple anonymous access website. We are adding Forms Authentication, and to make the HTML files utilize the authentication technique, we have added an entry in Application Extensions to have the HTML files processed by c:\winnt\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll. After making this change our web site does not display correctly. Specifically some of the smart quote characters, like opening and closing quotes display as gibberish characters - â€œ
We are led to believe it is an encoding issue, so we added <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> to the top of our HTML files – no change.
So, does anyone know a solution to this issue on the server side?
The Dreamweaver files are using some special encoding of these characters. Is there perhaps a setting in Dreamweaver to get it to use the HTML codes like “ or “ when saving the file?
