Character problem


I have problem with special characters.
When for example I have a “é” it output on the website the character below.

How can I resolve this?

Are all files saved with the same character encoding? It is recommended to use UTF-8 without BOM for all files, including templates, snippets and content files.

Yes. I saved my files with Dreamweaver.
Do you have a solution?

What you should also check is if your server transmits the encoding in the Content-Type header. It should also be UTF-8.
Then you should check if you have one of these meta tags in your header snippet:

<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

If any of these locations says anything else than UTF-8, you need to change it.

I have this UTF-8 meta in my header snippet but that doesn’t change anything…

Have you verified all what I wrote?

Have I to open all the files en resave it?

If some of the files aren’t encoded as UTF-8, yes. If they are already UTF-8 without BOM, you are fine.

Have you checked if your server sends the character encoding in the Content-Type header? If you don’t know how: I can check if the site is online and if you send me the URL of the site.
