Hi All;

I and trying to setup a japanese theme at

http://www.kanatutor.com/forums

The problem is that while I can build such a theme, the character set gets detected wrong on every page by firefox and IE.

Firefox detects the site as ISO-8859-1 instead of UTF-8.

If I manually switch encoding to UTF-8 the template looks fine.

Any ideas why my browsers miss the encoding?

Did you rebuild the theme after the change?

Your forum's theme sends:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-15">

you need to make sure theme's chaset is set to UTF-8

And hard-coding the header to UTF-8 is not working, very odd.

Well, I added AddDefaultCharset utf-8 to an htaccess file and all works now, not sure why it did not before.

If you want to change theme charset you do theme via theme manager, it is a theme option. You don't hard-code it into the template.

Yes but when the theme manager change does not make it stick, you try a hard-code to see if you can find the problem.

It works fine here, update the charset file for the language chosen and rebuild the theme. Works great.
