I have entries encoded in UTF-8, mostly with german umlauts. I have also set the under "options-reading-encoding" to utf-8 (and several other case spellings).
The problem is that the browsers (IE and Firefox) do not switch encoding from latin1 to utf, and the umlauts are displayed as garbage, although in the page metadata the content-encoding type is set to "text/html;charset=utf-8". This is very strange.
I also viewed other utf-8 test pages, and there this behavior does not occur, and in my current blog (from which I'd like to switch ;-) this does also not happen, although there is NO content/encoding html header sent at all.
Manually setting the encoding to UTF-8 in the browser's encoding menu does display the text correctly, but a reload destroys this setting and re-establishes the "bad" state again.
does anyone know more about this ... ?
