Hello experts

I have a php page containing html
Everything was ok until i noticed that database echo's where not displaying there utf-8 chars.
I added the following to the file
<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset="utf-8">

This solved the displaying of the utf-8 chars from the database echo's
But now the utf-8 chars that are in the html of that page like € and é ë are displayed as <?> icons

Any id's?

Hi,

Since they are static content, try encoding the characters in your HTML page using the below table.
