Ok… so in I’ve opened the html file, created by Freeway, in text wrangler and I see:

Entrance is:
£22.00 - Per Single Entrance
£33.00 - Per Joint Entrance *

but in Safari Source code view I see:

Entrance is:
£22.00 - Per Single Entrance
£33.00 - Per Joint Entrance *

So what’s going on there?!?!

What is the text encoding set to?

(Page output panel of Inspector palette.)

Hi Jeremy, set to Automatic

Automatic normally outputs Unicode (which is good), but I think you probably have Safari’s text encoding set to Western (ISO Latin-1).

The pound symbol is two bytes in Unicode, but one byte in ISO Latin-1 - so the additional Unicode byte is being misinterpreted as an extra character.

Try setting Safari’s text encoding (View menu) to Default.

Ok… so I changed it to force Unicode and now it looks ok… is that a problem… should it be auto?
