Mailto & Charset french

Post by workaholicbe » Mon Feb 11, 2008 9:41 am

I've a site where i use a html-codeline to call outlook express/thunderbird .

It's the normal

Code: Select all

<a href  ...mailto....blablabla subject?.....>
info on this line.

The problem is that i work with a multilingual site (french - english - german - dutch - swedish).
The PROBLEM is the following: If you open the mailbox it shows some bizar characters instead of the french à, é, è... 
For instance, the ' è ' is displayed like ' A¨ '

i use a country locale of 'nl_BE.utf8'

Can't i change something in that "html mailto"-line to change those bizar showing of characters?

What are my options?
