    Question "ã©" instead of "é" When preparing reports in PDF using PHP MySQL and PDF

    I have a web application that uses Mysql database and has been developed in PHP. When displaying the text from the database in HTML format, the french accents are ok, but now I need to develop the reports in PDF and when displaying the texts in PDF, the accents show different characters. The following is the HTML output: "été crédités"
    and this is in PDF: "été crédités".

    I am receiving the text to display in a $_SESSION variable

    This is the code that I am using to create the PDF:

    [CODE]

    <?php
    include "rinclude/Session.php"; // sesion time control
    require('../fpdf/fpdf.php');

    $pdf=new FPDF('P','mm','Letter');
    $pdf->AliasNbPages();
    $pdf->AddPage();
    $pdf->SetFont('Times','',11);
    $pdf->MultiCell(0,5,$_SESSION[Wsptext]);

    $pdf->Output();
    ?>

    [CODE]
    I think that is because the character set, but I do not know how to add the character set to the PDF.

    Thank you for your help.

    html_entity_decode

    Hi!

    I guess you could figure out that problem. I had the same and I could make it work using: html_entity_decode from PHP.
