Thanks for the resource, however after reading it...and the comments, and some other referenced threads, I'm still having the same problem. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="no" lang="no">
I can't answer that question, it's outside my arena. Hopefully someone will . . . my first guess is to say yes, as when I've encountered this I had my admin tweak something on the server and it went away.
You could try installing the FireFox extension Live HTTP Headers, and see what it says. For this site, I notice
And your characters are rendering fine here, so it appears this could be the case.
The problem was indeed caused by the server having a default charset of ISO-8859-1. It was easily rectified using an .htaccess file with the following line: AddDefaultCharset OFF
I hope this helps someone in the future. I should also point out that you should have the charset specified in each of your files if you are going to use AddDefaultCharset OFF. If you do not have a charset specified in each file you can use UTF-8 (or any other charset) instead of OFF.
