[resolved] UTF-8 versus iso-8859-1 (6 posts)

    Hi,

    We're using the default setting "UTF-8" in our WordPress installation. However, if you look in the page source, it states: charset=iso-8859-1

    Firefox displays the page correctly but IE does not.

    Manually switching IE to UTF-8 solves the "Dutch" character issue, but rather we'd have IE "see" that we use UTF-8 automatically. Did I miss something here? Where else can I set the encoding method, so it shows in the headers correctly?

    Thanks,
    Edde

    Is this the blog linked in your profile? If yes, then it must be something wrong with your IE settings. My IE6 "sees" it as utf-8 and in the source code it also says utf-8.

    Wow! Thanks for your quick reply.

    No it's another log: http://www.jeugdsentimenten.net/ But you're right about my own blog; it uses UTF-8
    Both blogs both should use "UTF-8" according to the wordpress options field.

    Post the header.php of the theme you are using on that jeugdsentimenten site here:

    Thanks Moshu!

    That was a hint in the right direction. The wrong charset was mentioned there. I've changed it into:

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />

    (see: http://wordpress.pastebin.ca/318023)

    Which works fine.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello, we worked with this issue and RSS feeds.
    We duplicated a plugin, renamed some of the functions and now we can pull ISO and UTF RSS feeds on our WordPress install.
