Accent problems after updgrading to 1.5 form 1.2Mingus (3 posts)

    Hello,
    I've just upgraded WordPress to 1.5 from 1.2Mingus and now all the accented letters in the posts appear like "�" in Firefox and like another strange simbol in Explorer.

    I edited a couple of posts and re-typed the letters, but I hope there's something easier to do to correct the problem.

    Any suggestion?

    Is this on the site provided in your profile? That one says it's powered by another script, not WP...
    As for your question: it maybe you've used another encoding (e.g. iso-8859-1) for your 1.2 version and the upgraded 1.5 version has the default utf-8 encoding. You have 2 choices: either to convert the old posts to utf-8 (that's the hard way) or change the encoding in your Options to the one that will display the correct characters.
