Scepcial chars like ? ? ? ? ? ...
scrooge
Hi all,
how can I solve the appearance of special characters?
The all appear like a black diamond with a question mark in it.
I guess this has something to do with the UTF-8 format, but I'm not sure.

I checked some php files and discovered the they were encoded in ansi and not in utf-8.
This solved most of my issues.
However, when I go to the admin section of my website, I can still see wrong characters. But I have no idea where they come from.

You should probably keep checking for non-utf8 encoded files. All text you see should come from the /locale/English (or your language) folder. There may be some random hardcoded string, but the locale folder is where to start looking.

Well, I finally found it, I checked my sql databases and those where set to latin-swedish (or something like that)
I was able to correct it and now all is shown like it should.
