View Full Version : need charset help.

07-06-2005, 12:27 PM
I installed a "Rate me script" on my site. (www.gat101.co.il/hotornot) I put a title and a few words in Hebrew (since I want to translate the script to hebrew) I have also changed ALL places in ALL files of the script where there was a definition of charset to charset=ISO-8859-8-I since this is the Hebrew one. Now, when open my page the words that are supposed to be Hebrew are "Jibrish". I take a look into the source via IE view/source and it says It changes the -8 to -1 !!! Of course if I choose via IE view/encoding/Hebrew(Windows) it changes fine and I see the Hebrew, but every time I reload the page, it switches back to "jibrish". (the view/encoding switches to "Western
European (Windows) ) How can I make that it should ALWAYS be the charset I want? I did a text search in ALL the script files and NO WHERE does it have ISO-8859-1 - so why is it changing to that?

Thank you

Your server (and for IE the page itself) must be set up to send the appropriate character set and encoding.
