Hello, can someone explain to me why and how to keep one of my .asp pages from passing
this character é as this é from one .asp page to the next and also into my SQL DB via a SQL Insert Query?

IE9: ʎ = ̩
Chrome18: ʎ = ̩
FireFox9:  é = é

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<!-- #include file="" -->
<html xmlns="">
<!--<meta content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" />
<form id="DonateForm" name="DonateForm" action="GCP21Reg2.asp" class="formular" method="post">
Name*</label><input id="txtFName" class="validate[required] text-input" name="txtFName" size="35" type="text" value="" />


sFirstName = Request("txtFName")
response.write sFirstName
