I have a website that is working fine, except I cannot get it to print
out characters other than plain text. Characters such as ', :, " and
others like degrees print with the dreaded black diamond with a ?
Anyone has any idea as to how I might overcome this.
I want to have my website printing out the above special characters.
I use MySql database to store text which is printed to the screen.
This is setup with coliation = Latin1_general_ci, but changing this
does not seem to mater.
My Layout has the following:-
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
I have changed UTF-8 without success
The part doing the printing in View-Show is:-
<%= @picture.description %>
