Subject RE: 5.0.16 and 5.0.18 international character support
Date Fri, 20 Feb 2004 16:57:02 GMT
I don't get the point of doing this. The problem is not request and
response, but the way characters are displayed.

Changed the charset to western European, charset=iso-8859-1, and now
everything works fine.

What Adam said was:
Look in the response headers to see it.

I think he *really* meant the response headers, not the html code.

To do that on IE, you need a plugin called ieHTTPheaders or something like
that.

On Netscape/Mozilla, use LiveHTTPHeaders.

Otherwise, if you are not on HTTPS, you can use a network sniffer.
