Firefox does not correctly display text containing unusual characters.

Special characters from other languages often do not display correctly. See attached screen print. This screen print was done from article at http://www.jewishworldreview.com/1119/burger_wont_rot.php3

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

This is likely a problem with the encoding: there server sends an eight bit ISO or Windows encoding, but the website uses Unicode˘i.e. you see the separate bytes of a multi byte Unicode character). Firefox always uses the encoding as send by the server if the server sends it, event when there is meta tag that specifies UTF-8 encoding.

You can check the Text Encoding (View -> Text Encoding) and make sure that it is set to Unicode. If this doesn't help then there is probably something wrong with the website.

Can you post a link to a publicly accessible page (i.e. no authentication or signing on required)?

Umnikazi wombuzo

TyDaniu, thank you for your response.

However, I am still mystified as to how to "declare" the correct encoding. I looked through the Firefox options before I posted my question to this Forum and did not see anywhere that can be done.

Any suggestions as to how this "declaration" can be accomplished would be appreciated.

Please note that this is not an isolated occurrence; I find it happens any time foreign words are included in the contents of a page.

cor-el,

That was the solution. The text was set to "Western". I changed it to Unicode and the special characters resolved themselves. In the future, if I encounter this problem I will know how to fix it.

Thanks.
