"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: "Ã©tÃ© crÃ©ditÃ©s".
I am receiving the text to display in a $_SESSION variable
This is the code that I am using to create the PDF:
include "rinclude/Session.php"; // sesion time control
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.
