Quotation Marks Linux / Firefox
I notice that my Fedora box cannot display the following symbols if they are curvy in the html text " ' -
Instead it gives a ?
Do I need to reset or update something in Firefox or update tons of db files in MySQL that work in other browsers?
hey what symbols are you talking about??
They are curvy quotes, ' " and the em dash symbol....
i never had a problem with those
instalkl new version of firefox
remove the seetings for firefox by
delect these files
and then try again
I looked but this did not work...
A page on my nix box with tons of curvy quotes is http://www.centerfirstamericans.com/mt.html?a=2 and FF messes it up...
Quotes not Firefox, but Linux problem
I found that curvy quotes and em dashes just plain don't display on my new fedora box (csfa) but do display on my old redhat 8.0 (csfa2) that both have the same html files.
Example: You can read “multiple hypotheses,” “paradigm shift”
And it works on http://csfa2.tamu.edu/mt.html?a=2 (third paragraph)
However, goto http://csfa.tamu.edu/mt.html?a=2 and wala it no longer works...
Even more surprising is that this is a mySQL issue because the characters:
– “ and ” will publish in static pages on both sites
Any ideas for this odd problem?
I figured out the solution to these kinds of issues involving characters not displaying...
You go into the php.ini file and remove the comment from the line
;default_charset = "iso-8859-1"
so it becomes
default_charset = "iso-8859-1"
This will allows all iso 8859 characters to display and hence it solves the problem.
