Subject [users@httpd] apache2: spurious [black diamond] question marks in iso-8859-1 HTML files
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2005 21:46:27 GMT
I just installed debian-install of kanotix and upgraded to sid.

It runs apache2. apache2 is configured and works fine, except when I am
viewing xsltproc-generated HTML files through it (generated with docbook-xsl).

In those files, I see lots of [black dimonds around] question marks,
in places near every hyperlink, as well as where the (c) copyright
symbol should be.

The black diamonds show up in firefox under x-widnows, and they are
just normal question marks in firefox on win/mac.

It seems as if apache2 is using the wrong character set or something.
opening with file:// works fine.

This is at the top of each HTML file:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

what do I need to switch on in apache2 to see iso 8859-1 characters?
