Hello
In an aspx project, I have two (very similar) pages that use a number of Telerik controls.
In both pages foreign chars like ó, é   (vowels with tilde) are directy types for example in labels, and some other places
However, in one of the pages these characters display ok, in the other page they display as square boxes.

I am not using resource files, and cannot find any significant differences in the encoding, neither in aspx or aspx.vb files. Both pages use the same master page.
I attach the screenshots (screenok, screenbad) and the respective code (codeok, codebad).

Of course if I use HTML encoding (ó instead of ó) they show ok in every case, but it is a real pain...
What am I missing?

TIA

Hi Oscar,

Please, make sure that you're saving the files as Unicode - UTF-8 with signature from File -> Advanced Save Options in VS. If this doesn't help try adding a meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

I hope this helps.

Sincerely yours,

Thanks, Advanced Save Options did the trick, as a backup mechanism I added the HTTP-Equiv tag to my master page.
