can you not print the charset inside one of the HTML tags? (<DOCTYPE> it might be in).
Also, if you dont want to keep typing out htmlentities("¤",ENT_QUOTES,"iso-8859-15") to get a euro, just do: $euro = htmlentities("¤",ENT_QUOTES,"iso-8859-15"); LJ "Sönke Tesch" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote in message [EMAIL PROTECTED]">news:[EMAIL PROTECTED]... > > Hi everybody! > > > I'm a bit lost.
