I have a JSON object that looks ok in the browser (chrome with utf-8 "mode").

When I use the web-application it seems that the javascript mess up the UTF-8 characters and i get a questionmark with a whitish diamond surrounding it.

What do I need to do in the javascript to handle a json object correctly regarding encoding?

Is the character messed up when it comes back from your request, or just when you inject it into the DOM?

You need to make sure your HTML page has a valid character set, i.e. utf-8. In the head of your page, make sure you have this:

<meta charset="utf-8">

I have <meta charset="utf-8"> in myhtml files. I still investigate where the error seems to happen. When I do a get on the URL that returns the JSON, it looks fine.

I will get back when I know more.
