Browsers symbol output is different. Opera 6.0 & Netscape 6.2 display copyright symbol wrong. mdharrold msg:1586089 12:12 am on Dec 11, 2001 (gmt 0) I have a page with the copyright symbol at the bottom. I have the exact same page created in a perl script. When the script runs, the copyright symbol changes into a diamond with a question mark in the middle. Any ideas why this would happen? IE 6.0 renders OK.

Do you have an address where I can see the page? Marshall msg:1586091 1:17 am on Dec 11, 2001 (gmt 0)
Have you tried using "& # 169 ;" (without the spaces) or are you using the symbol? The symbol is considered an illegal character. mivox msg:1586092 1:22 am on Dec 11, 2001 (gmt 0)
I think Marshal must have typed: &-copy-; without the hyphens... That's Unicode for the copyright symbol, and browsers will read the Unicode and display the correct symbol like so: ©
(There's also a code using numbers instead of the word
copy between the & and ; but the "copy" version is much easier to remember...)
LOL... I was wrong, Marshall actually remembers the numeric Unicode! (for those who come to the thread late... the previous post originally contained just the © symbol, because the browser interpreted the Unicode...) </added> Marshall msg:1586093 5:17 am on Dec 11, 2001 (gmt 0)
I may be having a little vision problem but my mind is tharp as a sack!
