French accented characters appear Chinese, apache 2.0.48/suse 9.0


Hi!

I am running a webserver and I am making it bilingual (half the people coming to my marriage don't speak a word of english, the other half don't speak a word of french). I am programming the site using PHP and HTML. I am using vi as the editor. When I enter an accented character with VI, it appears on the site as a chinese character.

Anyone know why? I know it has to do with the character set and I tried using the <meta equiv tag to specify the charset but that didn't seem to work.

If all else fails, I will just have to resort to using HTML tags &acute; or something like that...

Any thoughts?

David

Hey,

thanks. I did that and it worked. I was hoping there was an easier way.

I used a str_replace in PHP, it's a low volume site so it doesn't matter.

Thanks again,

David
