and am using £ to display a ukpounds stirling pound sign
however it it not displaying properly, it works fine in firefox and ie.
i'm sure it was working before and am wondering if it is due to the setting on my computer rather than opera.
with ISO-8859-1 works fine for me with Opera 9.00 (Linux), it should be the same for you. Have you tried specifically defining ISO-8859-1 in Opera? (Go to View > Encoding and change "Automatic selection" to Western/ISO-8859-1)?
Also, how are you defining the charset? A meta element or via a HTTP header?
on further investigation it is showing in place of several special characters...
including ½ and ¾
<update> i've reinstalled opera again and the problem has gone
as a note i have another site using the same special characters (eg £ € and the various fractions) and they were showing correctly, it was only on the one site that they weren't showing.
but as i say i've reinstalled opera and the problem has gone!
... thanks for your input guys.
