Thank you Lucy. I've been studying character encoding for the past 2 days and I'm (only) now starting to understand it a bit. I guess this is somewhat normal for someone with no formal computer education, although it can be frustrating.
One thing I am now undecided about is whether or not using special characters is really the way to go, especially that my websites cater mostly to an English speaking audience.
