I have a site using spanish language. The site was basically built using a separate language pack and smarty template engine.
The site works fine for English and Spanish too.
The charset is set to UTF-8.
It accepts the ascents like ñ but the only problem I am facing is when this ñ comes from the database in a SELECT drop down menu, it shows a ? mark in that.
When I try to change the charset to iso-8859-1, it fixes this issue in the drop down, but messes up everywhere the same ñ coming from the language pack variables.
