    The solution for me was to remove characters from the Blank ASCII Character Striper in the Admin CP. ASCII character 160 is the à character, and for some reason it was in there. So I removed it and all is well.

    I'm also having this problem and I can reproduce it on this board.

    Sorry, I have no idea. However since it works fine on these forums, here's the setting we are using:

    HTML Character Set : ISO-8859-1

    Problem with the à character

    In my forum there is a problem with the à character. What happens is that whenever it is used, it gets combined with the character after it.

    You can see this happening here http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=96696
    where the first post I typed "à b c d" and the second "àbcd".

    But in Internet Explorer they appear as "àb c d" and "àcd" respectively, having the character I typed immediately the à disapear. Yet, when I view the page source in Notepad, the second characters do appear, but the à has turned into an uppercase à (and not the different type of accent).

    This does not seem to happen with any other accented characters.

    My web server is giving Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
    and in the language settings of the admin CP the HTML Character Set is UTF-8
    Internet Explorer is also set as UTF-8

    Another thread showing this problem http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=96067

    The à character seems to work fine in this vBulletin forum. Can anyone say what I am doing wrong in mine?
