thank you for youre answer

i have already solved this problem ...
you ar on the right way ;-)

the input with the name test is loaded by .load()  with a php-script ...

i have to set the header at top of this script ...

	header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1');

Open in new window


now is works very well ...

thanx
