    Hi!

    Although I'm using rolodap v1.0 with the default putheader function (charset=utf-8) IE 6.0 client does not switch to Unicode, but uses the default coding.
    When switching the page in IE to Unicode by hand, it works. But this is not acceptable, because I have to do it everytime.

    Can someone help me on that?
    I really don't understand, why IE ignores the charset command in the HTML head.

    Thank you very much.
    Cheers
    Daniel

      Hi!

      It is not a problem related to the browser client, but to the Apache configuration.
      If using the rolodap demo page, IE switches to UTF-8 without problems.
      If viewing simple HTML pages from my apache server, IE also switches the charset.
      Only for the phtml generated pages the charset switching does it do not work.

      Can somebody help me with this?
      What could be the reason for the problem?
      Thank you very much.

      Best regards
      Daniel

      I found a solution by myself:

      In the latest Linux Mandrake distribution in
      php.ini there is
        default_charset
      set to ISO.
      I've removed this entry. Now it works.

      Cheers
