I am new to Ruby on Rails. I have read a lot, and bought several books,
and now I have started to implement a modified “shopping cart”,
following the AWDWR-book, with modifications to suit our application
(subscriptions and memberships).
Having done up to chapter 7 I have had no real problems, except one:
Since our customers are Swedish I need the screen names, texts etc to be
in swedish, (the internals are ok with English, which we always have
used to be prepared for business abroad some day).
When I in the .rhtml files write characters Ã¥, Ã¤, and Ã¶ (or Ã?, Ã?,
Ã?)[these are swedish charactera a a and o, A, A with umlaut characters
above] I get a problem: the show up on the screen as a question mark [?]
Does not UTF-8 take care of this?
How do I adjust the .rhtml files to show Swedish characters?
Thanks in advance!
