Really starnge problem that I'm having: I've different pages some with Japanese, some with French characters (never mixed - either 1 or the other) Different parts of the pages are displaying the characters correctly and in other parts, some of the characters are replaced with ??? or ??? in diamonds. I have this in the head (which is actually a php included file): Which I thought was enough. I think because it's an included file theres an issue with the server default encoding taking over and messing up havf of the characters... Just not sure if it is a server encoding issue and why only half of the characters are affected Has anyone experienced anything like this?
