problems with accents and s


Hi all.... I'm using Red Hat 9 and I'm having problems with accents and characters. Since my native is Spanish when I write texts I get strange characters instead of the accents and s. eg. if I use gedit and/or NVU 0.30 web editor after write the text and save it, if I look at it in a web page i get those estrange characters.

How can i fix this?

thnks,.
Cheers

Ok thanks, I wrote using the í way and for is ñ
Have noticed that there are several ways to do this, some for writing in a terminal and others for X

Some are archives that must be modifyed or write commands in a terminal. But the problem is that I have a database in ISIS to load and our operator reported problems with this. I'll check them tomorrow and finaly know what isgoing on.

Thanks for the tips
cheers.

I have notice that some servers parse correctly the and accents, and some other not. Like my apache running on my home computer works with no problem. Now I am renting a dedicate server that uses Fedora with ensim, but it has the problem with the and accents.

Is ther any file I have to change to configure it rigtht. Maybe the http.conf? I would check it out. I any can help I would apreciated. Thanks,

Rafael

You can edit the httpd.conf file and change the line:
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
to
AddDefaultCharset Off
