Hello Poul Terray,
I can see that the characters did not show well.
Perhaps the answer lies in the unability to display this mail's text as
well. Using the link that you gave me, I will try to explain better:
Well, the above was supposed to show ae, oe and aa:
Rather than displaying the Danish characters of ¿,¸ and å the presentation
[ æ ] (æ ) LATIN SMALL LETTER AE (ash) * LATIN SMALL LIGATURE AE; ash
(from Old English 泣)
[ ø ] (ø ) LATIN SMALL LETTER O WITH STROKE LATIN SMALL LETTER O
[ å ] (å ) LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH RING ABOVE
(The only one that was showed correctly)
The left character now depicts what I intended it to show but in the
homepage it shows as:
is the following:
æ instead of ¿
[ ę ] (ę ) LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH OGONEK
The left chacter also suddently showed the correct character in this mail,
but the homepage showed this as:
ø instead of ¸
(It does not show what I see but I see the charater like u with same IGONEK
as the former character or perhaps as greek character (the one used in
measuring meaning 1e-6)).
This one is the only one showing the correct result all over (also on the
å is depicted as å
They don't go through the mail. Are you sure they are in iso-8859-1 ?
They might not be in the database, even though they should. As I wrote in
the first mail, I use encoding="8859-1" and get this result so I guess that
the database must use something else - but this is only my guess, as I don't
know about this at all.
To check that, go to :
Type your character and look at the Subblock.
It shows what is in the mail, not what I actually see.
What database do you use ?
I am not quite sure (as I don't know that much about this stuff) but is
shown as: Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft SQL Server 2000. I don't know if
this is enough information.
If anyone can tell me whether I should find out how to change the settings
in the database (the characters are shown correctly looking directly at the
rows in the database), or if this is a problem that might be in the
stylesheet (all my other stylesheets uses 8859-1 with no problems), then I
will be very gratefull.
Thank you all,
Ragulf Pickaxe :)
