Very strange: Umlauts (äöü) aren't displayed correctly in


That's a nice movie, but really, have you checked what headers are sent
to the browser? Can you something similar to

   wget --save-headers http://youhost/path/to/your/app

and see if there's charset there.

If it's not there try adding the following to ApplicationController:

  after_filter :set_charset

  def set_charset
    content_type = @headers["Content-Type"] || 'text/html'
    if /^text\//.match(content_type)
      @headers["Content-Type"] = "#{content_type}; charset=utf-8"

If anyone has a nicer solution please let me know.

Best regards,
