    Hey,

    I'm from Denmark, and we have three unique letters in the alphabet. Now.. When I use text editor or whatever "internal in osx" the characters show up fine. But if I do other stuff, like send a mail, the characters look garbled in the other end (the reciever). Also, I edited some of my homepage html files today, and uploaded them, like I have done 100's of times. But this time the danish characters look garbled in the browser.

    I guess it COULD have come after the big OSX update recently. All my national settings look correct. What can be wrong?

    I use "TACO html edit". If I change the metadata for character-encoding in the HTML file to UTF-8, the danish characters are shown just fine..

    Can "TACO html edit" not save in ISO-8859-1..? Because I do not see an option for this.

    BTW, which of those two are most normal these days?

    Encoding is everything. Make sure you and the people who complain about garbled letters are all set to UFT-8. It's more or less the standard.
