View Full Version : Help with accents
12-08-2005, 12:28 PM
I want to convert the following page:
but the accented letters came as follows:
frío = frÃ-o
República = RepÃ°blica
pronóstico = pronÃ³stico
Does anybody know what to do?
I am using iSilo 4.27 for palm and iSiloX 4.27

The problem is the following:
1. The web server says that the file is encoded as UTF-8.
2. An internal header in the HTML file says the file is encoded as ISO-8859-1.
3. The title inside the HTML file is encoded as ISO-8859-1.
4. The body content in the HTML file is encoded as UTF-8.
iSiloX takes the internal encoding specification, which results in the invalid interpretation of the body content that you see. So either you need to have the webmaster there make the encoding information consistent or you have to download the file and do it yourself by modifying the title to use UTF-8 and modifying the internal header to say that the content is encoded as UTF-8.

That is a goverment server, and I'll try to reach the web master, but then,how can the page be displayed correctly on Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera and not on iSilo?

Because those browsers have been programmed with additional logic to try to display the content as intended.
