I think that you need to use the html code to avoid any problems with spanish characters.

or try this:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" lang="es">

LIONKING, your suggestion would work but I should have provided more detail in the question.  The string will be created via a form textarea submission so the end user will be submitting the actual character instead of the ascii codes.  I'm hoping to replace the actual character in the string with the proper ascii code using a replace function.

sammySeltzer, your suggestion appears to have worked. thanks.
