Have you tried changing from UTF-8 to ISO ;)

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-2022-JP">


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

See if it helps ;)

You can see working demo page source on the link (http://www.ray.lv/scripts/rss/demo.htm), charset is set yo utf-8:<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Yup, I know it is UTF-8 as stated in post#1, but have you tried playing with the other content-type language, other than utf-8 ;)

having the same problem. tried proposed solutions, to no avail. is the solution available? Have seen the phpbb mod solution, but a swap is not enough and I am not using it in phpbb, which is how they get around the UTF-8 conversion. Is there no solution to this? this is what happens:


please help?

This is part of a more general problem (also) involving Ajax-requests, cf. this (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33313).
