      Webviewer does not show special character properly

      Post

      Plattform: Windows (Swissgerman) 

      FileMaker Adv. 10.v02  (English)

       

      I have a webviewer placed on a layout setup showing the content of a text field. The textfield contains a calculated HTML page (HTML with some information derrived from the database fields (e.g. Substitute(myhtmlcode, "myplaceholder", tablea::fielda).

       

      The HTML page shows all right on a Mac, but on Windows all special characters (äöü, etc) show up as ? or little square boxes).

       

      The HTML header contains the "UTF-8" tag.

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

       

      Does anybody know a solution for this?

       

      Thanks
