[resolved] UTF-8 problem... sigh (3 posts)

    I started out with a blank theme and the most recent Worpress version today and started transferring my index.html to my blank WordPress *.php files. Soon I ran into a problem. On my home page I have both static and dynamic content. For example i have a heading that says "Senaste nytt från bloggen" and then below that I'll have an excerpt of the latest blog post. Sadly, the Å Ä Ö characters doesnt work and just generate a "?" instead. They do however work in the dynamic content, for example in my blogposts.

    I'd very much appriciate your help!

    Thanks in advance!

    Add this code to your theme's header.php file after <head>:
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />

    Thanks for your reply, but that doesn't change anything.

    The code that is there right now ` <meta charset="<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    should get the charset I have set in the admin panel I guess. Which is UTF-8...
