Just recently Google Chrome seems to have started showing Swedish national characters with yen-signs and whatnot instead of the correct Å, Ä and Ö.
My research shows that this is probably due to to that Joomla is set to use UTF-8 (the default I believe) while Chrome is set to use Latin1 (I think it's also called ISO-8859-1).
Now, further research suggests that UTF-8 can be set or changed in php.ini, httpd.conf but not in Chrome, as recent versions of Chrome reportedly does the change automatically and the user can't change that.
FWIW, when tested with Firefox, same thing happens there - weird characters when writing in Swedish are seen in the front-end.
An example can be found on https://www.srbu.se/motorcycles/158-ser ... lning-nbsp.
AFAICT, my Joomla runs the language defaults with english and swedish languages.
Httpd.conf is set to use UTF-8, as php.ini is.
Mysql seems to be using both latin1 and UTF-8 for some reason. Is this the default setting, and could this matter?
Code: Select all
Database Collation latin1_swedish_ci Database Connection Collation utf8_general_ci
Suggestions and hints are greatly appreciated!
