I'm using PHP inludes to include content on the page which stays the same, e.g.
<?php include("_site-footer.php"); ?>
My page have this tag in the head (also added with 'php include')
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
Special characters display fine if the text is directly on the page. However, if there is any included text the characters don't display, e.g.
Vilkår comes out as Vilk�r, and so on.
I have no idea what to do, so thank you for any help.
P.S. My pages are in Norwegian with some English. Should I set the encoding to something different than UTF-8? Also, I only need to get it to work on my local machine for now – so no need to fiddle with settings on a hosting account. Just need to get it to work with PHP on my Mac.
