I used a code to determine the request and response encodings, this way i thought i could solve the encoding problem. But the problem got really weird

i used the above code in a file and below are the results in Firefox , opera and internet explorer 7 for the same file


Request Encoding: [UTF-8 ]
Response Encoding: [UTF-8 ]

Request Encoding: [UTF-8 ]
Response Encoding: [UTF-8 ]

Request Encoding: [ISO-8859-1 ]
Response Encoding: [UTF-8 ]

Firefox and Opera works fine (Shows the turkish characters) but ie7 behaves different(wrong). I have no idea why,any idea would be appreciated..

What is the connection between the request encoding and showing characters? The way characters are displayed depends on the response encoding, which seems to be correct.

Or is what you're displaying submitted in a form as part of the request? If so, make sure that the page that contains the form is sent as UTF-8. Browser generally use the form page's encoding as the encoding for sending form submits.

In addition, add this to your FORM tag:
<form ... accept-charset="UTF-8" ...
