Special characters in HTML editor

Postby vincentc » Thu Aug 02, 2012 11:45 am

Hello,

Our customer works in WebClient only.

They use a module for sending e-mail that we have developed them (with Servoy 6.0.5).

As input field of the message, we use an editable field HTML_AREA. So we have the HTML editor by default (based on YUI 3 I think), which has existed since the version 6 of Servoy.

The problem we have concerns special characters in HTML editor, especially the character "•".

For example, when we send it:
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
test signature
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

We receives it:
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
test signature
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Do you know a way to circumvent this problem?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi,

This is related to the character set that is specified in the HTML. To support allmost all characters use the UTF-8 characterset. In the header of your HTML mail you should include a line like this:

Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8">


Hope this works for you.
