Odd problems with accents and search

  • davepwsmith

    @davepwsmith

    On my site I have various posts with simple accented characters in. These by and large work fine, but in searches there are some odd anomalies:

    Appears ok? Try pressing the ‘older’ link at the top. Many accents and some punctuation is all screwed up. Any ideas?

  • I don’t see anything wrong… Can you be more specific about the “anomalies”?

    Hm, on my mac a lot of the punctuation, for example ” and ‘ and the accents, eg á are all displayin as things like !@. Here is an example:

    Yesterday there was a “Castillo” in the centre of Guzmán to celebrate San José. After the celebrations of “El Día Juarez”, everybody was ready for the festivities, and the atmosphere added to the excitement. There were many people in the central square; the children screamed and played, a group played “Banda” music, and there were various food and drinks stalls.

    After a bit more investigation, this happens only in Safari, but I’m still slightly baffled as to why!
