Or at least, that's my guess. I'm not sure what I should be looking for. The charset used by my table is latin1. I checked the http header of the generated html:Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1
ie, latin1. Now, my biggest issue here is that I don't know what exactly the issue is that I'm meant to be examining.
What changes a correct display of Espa˝ol in the DB and when testing in the shell to Espa├▒ol in the web page output.
Anyone got any pointers?
update: When I call the test page using wget, the output displays correctly in vi, so I'm assuming that the issue is in what the browser thinks the output is. Hmmmmm.
update 2: changing the charset through header_props() to 'utf-8' presents the data correctly. So, I'm assuming that MySQL is throwing out the data as utf-8. Well, getting *some* progress here ;-)
In reply to OT? Character set issues with MySQL/CGI::Application by cLive ;-)
