hi all,
I am grabbing contents from external site and show it in my site. The site uses ISO-8859-1 charset for their content type. I am using UTF-8 charset. This makes some junk characters to be displayed in languages like Spanish and German.
When I use ISO-8859-1 charset the problem is solved but through out my site I have used only UTF-8 as a standard, so I cannot use ISO charset.
Pl help me in finding a soln to this problem.
Thanks in Advance,
I agree. Here's the link:
