[-] German language problem
« on: February 05, 2011, 08:48:05 PM »

In German they have these ü and ä and ö characters. I can write them in the website text and it shows ok. When I open it with the snippet to edit, the special characters are "messed up". When I write the special characters in the snipper editor, they come out ok, but then they are "messed up" in the html (website file). Most likely I have to add something to my html in order to coordinate the html with the snippet tool? I entered already these codes at my website:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//DE"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="de" xml:lang="de">
<META content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" http-equiv=Content-Type />

Does anybody has an idea, how I can coordinate my html with the snippet, in order to write the characters normally?
Thanks

Try using utf-8 instead of iso-8859-1

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Thanks for the hint, I forgot to mention I have this line in the html also:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

With all this coding it shows now ok on the website and on Snippetmaster. But still in dreamweaver, the html cod looks like this: H&uuml;sli (Hüsli)
