|encoding issue with "Share on Facebook" link|
facebook encoding utf-8 iso-8859
| 6:20 pm on Aug 2, 2008 (gmt 0)|
I thought it would be straight forward to add a "Share on Facebook" link to my site.
For each page of content that people wish to share, I'd have a dynamic link as follow: [facebook.com...]
Now here is my problem.
My websites is encoded in ISO-8859-1 whereas Facebook is encoded in UTF-8. So when I "share" a page of my site on fb, it comes up in Facebook with rather silly characters.
Anyone has ever experienced a similar problem?
Any help would be really appreciated.

This won't directly answer your question, but you may want to look into converting your site to UTF-8:
