I have to present german umlaute as “Ã¤” on my webpage. When writing the
text within the view, everything is fine - the characters are presented
correctly. When I declare variable within the controller (e.g. via flash
or as a list of values for a listbox) the text is displayed with the
umlaute replaced by strange characters.
I assume I have to adjust the character encoding somewhere.
I am runnin Rails in the standard configuration.
On which places can this be done in Rails ?
Thanks a lot in advance
