[Pro] WY short text and Ä, Ö, Ü, ß, ...

Hello,

i think this question goes especially to max :wink: but of course I appreciate any help
Why does the WY short text element not show umlauts or special characters on my site?
Everytime i type an Ä, Ö, Ü or ß etc. in the editors window and save it, it doesn’t show up on the page.
The meta chartset of the site is set to ISO-8895-1.

Any suggestions?

meta chartist is: ISO-8859-1

Should it not be UTF-8?

I tried UTF-8 too, but the short text element doesn’t work with that chartset either.
I think that european special characters and umlauts work with both, ISO-8859-1 and UTF-8, or am I false?

What is your Page/Document encoding set for - that will influence any content. I think UTF-8 would be the preferred.

Right now ISO-8859-1, but I tried UTF-8 too. Same result …

Post a link to a page online that doesn’t display as you would expect.

From W3 Schools

"The HTML5 Standard: Unicode UTF-8

Because the character sets in ISO-8859 was limited in size, and not compatible in multilingual environments, the Unicode Consortium developed the Unicode Standard.

The Unicode Standard covers (almost) all the characters, punctuations, and symbols in the world.

Unicode enables processing, storage, and transport of text independent of platform and language.

The default character encoding in HTML-5 is UTF-8."

Hi Dave,

here’s a link to one of the pages (where I’m fiddling around):

Hi Dave,

now I did as you said and the pages (i.e. http://www.grayfix.at/planc_test/index.php) show no umlauts (take a look at the foot wrapper: Österreich instead of Österreich, Ãœber instead of Über, © instead of © …
That’s the reason why i chose ISO-8859-1 before.

greets

Interesting - If I use Developer tools to force the encoding to UTF-8 I get

Not being that familiar with WY there may be a way to force the encoding to UTF-8 in WY to overcome this.

Hmmm, indeed very interesting. But this wrapper is without the use of any web yep item. They are common text boxes in a html element.

Damn, I really don’t know what I did wrong

could it be something with google fonts? the whole typeset of the site uses google fonts …

Here is something else to look at

<link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,400italic,700,700italic&subset=latin,latin-ext' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

Note the subset declaration in there. But that should be ignored. Best not to include it though.

However you do have the font file included before the Charset declaration. Maybe you should move the font inclusion line down in the source a bit.

No - you cannot include that line within Style Tags

Hi Dave,

I copied the google fontset link as provided. Now I changed the link like you said and placed it into the before markup. Unfortunately no success – the umlauts are still wrong …

Did you read my post about the incorrect placing of the link to the font files?

You have:

<style type="text/css">
<!--
<link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,400italic,700,700italic' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
.filmtitelgross { color:#418b67; font-family:'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size:19px; line-height:1.2; text-align:left; font-weight:700 }

Which means that you have added the line that starts

<link href='https://fonts.goog

Inside an existing style block and so the font is not being loaded.

It should be on its own

Fix that and let us know

Oh, sorry Dave,

I uploaded the wrong files. Now the line should be in the right place

Yes I know. I’m fiddling around with the chartset and the footer positioning, but despite your kind guidance I can’t find any clue
