chrachter set / encoding

Post by The Chef » Sun Jul 19, 2009 6:32 pm

There's a browser problem. I can only login to the forum when I use UTF-8 Unicode. However, when I do that, the site does not display all charachters as it should (thise black foursquared markers with questionmarks in them.

Is it possible to update the site so that it can deal with more chracter sets?

I have the problem in firefox and opera.

Okay, however, it is still not working. In order to logon I have to use these characters for my name Piére:

Piére

If I don't use this form, I cannot logon. When I use "Piére", it says, incorrect username.

Test with the word Piére.

There is still one issue that should be resolved.

The main site, has to use TTF-8 encoding in order to see certain characters the right way, but the forum needs western encoding to view these same characters.

Isn't it possible to synchronize this so I don't have to change the chracter set each time?
