Hello !

My site is using UTF-8 as it's default encoding..

I would like to display a rss feed from a news site, which uses ISO-8859-2 encoding..
Is there any way so that the characters don't get messed up ???

The 'rule' states -- one Character Set Encoding per page -- but that doesn't keep you from having more than one char set per web site... Wink

For instance, I use ISO-8859-1 for most of my production site (example):
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

However, I use UFT-8 encoding for a couple of modules (examples):
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

To do this, I have hacked 'includes/meta.php'.

Code:
<snip>


##################################################
# Include for Meta Tags generation - Hacked by VinDSL (lenon.com)  #
##################################################

global $name;
if ($name=='ODP'||$name=='ChatterBox_DSL') {
echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"Content-Type\" CONTENT=\"text/html; charset=UTF-8\">\n";
} else {
echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"Content-Type\" CONTENT=\"text/html; charset="._CHARSET."\">\n";
}
echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"EXPIRES\" CONTENT=\"0\">\n";
echo "<META NAME=\"RESOURCE-TYPE\" CONTENT=\"DOCUMENT\">\n";
echo "<META NAME=\"DISTRIBUTION\" CONTENT=\"GLOBAL\">\n";
echo "<META NAME=\"AUTHOR\" CONTENT=\"$sitename\">\n";
echo "<META NAME=\"DESIGNER\" CONTENT=\"VinDSL\">\n";

<snip>


That's the only way I know of doing it... Cool

Thanks Vin! I think this might possibly be the solution for this issue as well...
