Spanish recomended charset

  • Hi,

    Default recommended charset by wordpress is UTF-8, but, if my page is in spanish, then recomended charset is iso-8859-1, isn’t is? Should I change this option to iso-8859-1, then?

    Thanks.

  • Unless you’re targeting older browsers or have some specific reason not to, you should probably use the UTF-8 charset.

    “Unicode provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language.” http://www.unicode.org/standard/WhatIsUnicode.html

    Ok Tahongawaka, thank you 🙂

    Mmm I finally changed it to iso-8859-1: I observed that whith UTF-8, letters with accents dissapeared in rss & atom feeds. Changing to iso-8859-1 all is right; I can see accented letters fine. Regards.

    FINALLY something worked for me!!!!
    My blog is both in Spanish and English but, for some reason posts in Spanish appeared with lots of fubby characters… Blix wan’s supporting my Spanish diacritics when seen on Internet Explorer…. but apparently is already fixed… just by changing to iso-8859-1

    Can anyone using Internet Explorer go see if posts in Spanish are ok??? I just want to make sure it’s not just me.

    It seems fine even in IE, but I don’t get this:

    Usually the encoding is not theme related (unless blix has some idiotic thing in this regard, too) and posts with different characters should be displayed the same in all the themes.
    However, it might be that when editing (=hardcoding) template files, like the sidebar, bloggers use a text editor that doesn’t have utf-8 support… and then whatever they write shows up as garbage 🙂
