Special characters

Hi there,

I'm having trouble with special chars like æ. ø and å. If I type in a name manually it works fine, but if it's submitted via the subscription form it doesn't show the special chars.

How can this be?

Hi Oskar, you'll need to make sure that the page hosting the subscribe form is using UTF-8 encoding. We've written more about how to handle these characters here.

Thanks Dave.

The subscription-form is on a non-utf8 site and I can not change the entire page to utf-8 since it'll just bork some other chars.

What I need is the specific formular to send utf-8 data but I'm not sure whether this is possible or not?

I've just run into this very problem again. I've set up a subscribe form on a page where I can not alter the encoding meta-tag.

What is the alternative solution?
