acute grave and accented letters


Recommended Posts

If one inserts acute letters, grave letters, ampersands and accented letters in xhtml they show perfectly on the page.

However if one uses insert or rss feed they show as � or a square.


How does one make them show correctly.

Eventually found this was 2 different problems. The inserts issue was solved by using htmlentities(); Like,,

htmlentities($french= strftime("%A %d %B %Y - %H:%M",time()));

echo htmlentities($french);

The Rss feed issue was one of different coding I am using UTF-8 and the feed was using ISO-8859-1 I found that using

iconv() did the trick, like,

<p style="margin-bottom:0px;">'.iconv ( 'UTF-8', 'ISO-8859-1', $item->description ). '</p>
