Strange characters after Swedish language install

Hi!

 

New here :)

 

I just installed osCommerce and also isntalled a swedish language pack.

 

swedish_catalog_&admin_2.2ms2

 

After adding setting up Swedish as default language the site looks a bit strange everywhere where there is a swedish character, ???.

 

Example:

Vad finns h䲿  
V䬫ommen G䳴! Vill du logga in? Eller vill du skapa ett nytt konto?

 

If I ad a product or write anything with swedish characters it looks ok. It is just the default swedish translation that does not work correctly.

 

I am running linux (Fedora) on the server.

 

Has anyone an idea on how this could be solved? Can it have anything to do with the settings on the server?

 

Thanks! :)

Vger :)

 

Thanks for the quick reply :)

 

I live in Sweden and the browser works fine with swedish characters. The strange thing is that I can edit the files with an editor externally. Everything works fine then.

 

If I choose to edit the file via the oscommerce/admin-tool (tools/file manager) then the text looks fine.

 

In other words... if I ftp the swedish index.php and edit it locally on my desktop then some text kan look like this:

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'L?t oss se vad vi har h?r.');

 

If I instead edit the file via the admin/tools-file manager then it looks like this

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'L崠oss se vad vi har h䲮');

 

This same error in interpreting the swedish character also happens when I surf the web shop site.

 

Strange :(

Just for the record :)

 

A good friend of mine just found out what the problem was....

 

It was a setting in the Apache-web server.

 

In the file: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

 

The line: AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

 

Was changed to: AddDefaultCharset ISO-8859-1

 

This solved the problem :):):)

 

Thanks to the good knowlege of Pedro Rodrigues at www.tpf.se
