ODD SYMBOLS NOW for Spanish letters á é í ó ú ñ ü on existing(older) posts that were't there before?


Please provide a solution for the ASC codes for foreign letters and other symbols in our existing threads that have been changed to little black diamonds with question marks in them.

á é í ó ú ñ ü ° Á É ¿ ¡ Ü

If you have a Mac, those symbols are included in the keyboard by holding down the character key. The options will then appear.

Other than that, you may go to the website: http://www.academic.evergreen.edu/projects/biophysics/techno...

I have no problem posting them Udo, it is that the old posts with those letters are now showing them as error marks (a black diamond with a question mark in it. Just look at my first post in my new trip report.

I was alerting Doug so he could correct that.

Here that is:

I traveled most of the known roads to the beaches between Santa Rosal�a and Ensenada Blanca (below Loreto) and the rough roads between San Javier and Comond�, on to La Pur�sima and back east to Hwy. 1.

It's definitely a screw-up in the website configuration. All the non-ASCII characters are being converted to that "�" character before being shown. Even copyright symbols on the main page are showing incorrectly. http://forums.bajanomad.com/

So I don't think the posts themselves are corrupted in the database, it is some higher-level website misconfiguration.

Well, this kind of thing happened last time Doug rebooted the site, as I recall. He can fix it (I hope).

Thank you, Doug.

I edited my first post in my trip report replacing the black diamonds with the Spanish accented letters. But, I imagine there is 15 years of other posts that need the fix?
