How do I get accents to display correctly?

Let’s get one thing straight. If you’re still using ISO-* shit to have compatibility with people that aren’t using [[|UTF-8]] yet, they will never upgrade.. Just use UTF-8 and so we all can use the most modern character encoding… and get on with our lives.

Like the [[|XChat]] guys say:

Use Unicode ( UTF-8 ) and tell all your friends to use Unicode. Problem solved!

Using UTF 8 on your web page is as simply as including this tag on the //head// section:

And on a general Debian/Debian-based Linux system for using UTF-8 within applications issue:

# dpkg-reconfigure locales

and select UTF 8 if it’s not yet enabled.

Ubuntu users see [[|here]].

“Just do it”.
