Displaying hungarian letters correctly


displaying non-English letters on a website needs additional coding, and I need your assistance to display HUNGARIAN (ő, ü, ö, etc…) letters correctly on a website. Now, when displaying the characters with their ASCII code (i.e. &#233 for ‘é’), that is OK! But I have some recordds in a MySql database as well (guestbook entries, blog posts…) and they look weird in the browser (like hieroglyphs…). Can someone tell me how can I escape (if that’s the correct method) those characters to display correctly???
I hope I was clear enough with describing the issue…

Thank you advanced!


In the meantime I found the solution to my problem :
in the HTML header instead of

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

I changed the charset to utf-8 :

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

which solved the problem!

yup i was going to write that :D:D

any way ,may be some point of time you will think of generating pdf for same…or use gd libaries to generate image from those text…
