funny symbols being displayed before £ sign (8 posts)

    I followed this article to transfer posts to my home page.

    Problem is that when it is transfering across a "£" sign it is printing "£" on my home page.

    http://www.pistolpokerleague.com/index.php and see the top article "Taxi to Chequers"

    Please advise.

    I think it's a character encoding problem.

    Your main site:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

    Your blog:
    meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

    it has altered the size of the top of my left navigation menu.
    Is there something you could suggest?

    on http://www.pistolpokerleague.com/index.php check out the left menu
    at the top it says pistol poker league but it is smaller than the rest of my pages.

    The change I made was to set the character coding on index.php to the same as the blog. UTF-8.

    You have 2 home pages!

    http://www.pistolpokerleague.com/index.php
    http://www.pistolpokerleague.com/index.html

    The Home link on your nav bar points to the .html version but your domain landing page is the .php version - which has a smaller <body> font in the CSS (10px as opposed to 11px).

    thanks for looking at that for me. Seems fine now.
    I'm in the middle of updating my website, which is the reason for the two home pages.
