How to display ë, ä, á, ... in view

Hi,

I’m trying to at a select box to my page like so:

<%= select(‘company’, ‘country’, [[‘België’, ‘BE’],
[‘Nederland’, ‘NL’]]) %>

But the ë in België is displayed as ? in Firefox and as || in IE5.

I have already placed some html code at the top of the page:

<%= @title %>

But that doesn’t solve the problem. Anybody managed to solve it? All
help is welcome. Thanks.

Kind regards,

Nick

Make sure your editor saves the file in UTF-8 charset.

Hi Andreas,

changed editor settings to UTF-8 and it worked magically! Thanks!!

hey,

read this http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.rails/33858
this is how i solved my problem

cuz i also export to pdf and excel

if i used utf8:
-the website OK
-export pdfs and excels NOT OK

if i used iso-8859-1:
-the website NOT OK
-export pdfs and excels OK

so i set the charset for each def in all my controllers, this worked for
me.

Nick.

I’m not a RoR guru, but a fact is when using:

(so charset “ISO-8859-15”) in your HTML files there’s no problem
displaying
chars like that, in my case pulled straight from a mysql db. (done with
a
perl script). I imagine this works as well for rails but you have to
figure
out what (read: where) to tell Rails.

Regards,

Gerard.
