in thread Encode string to HTML

decodeing from utf-8 only helps if the source code is actually encoded as UTF-8. This may or may not be the case.

At least according to Wikipedia, likely encodings are also ISO 8859-3, ISO 8859-9 or Windows-1254, if guessing that &iuml is supposed to depict a Turkish letter.

    Indeed so - it is nigh on impossible to determine the encoding of a document from a single character, so the actual encoding of the source will only be known by gepebril69. UTF-8 seemed a reasonable first guess in this instance and it does produce the desired output for that one character.

    I've checked the template file and it is

    text/html; charset=utf-8

    Now I understand why I had a similar problem in the past with parsing files. Perl don't seem to auto detect this formatting. It will have a logical reason I guess
