Replacing special chars in html by &-values RRS feed

  • Question

  • User630035755 posted
    Hi, I've searched these forums but couldn't find a topic covering this. I'm using freetextbox 3.0 (wysiwyg editor for asp.net) for a mailing list, but when my text contains special chars like ó or similar, it's being replaced by ? in the mail I receive. Is there a setting/function/regular expression which solves this problem? Since the text is html it may not replace > and < bij > and < and I don't have any idea which special chars need to be replaced (too many possible characters to think of?). Hope anyone has any experience with this to get me started. Thanks, Speerman

    I'm using the FreeSMTP.Net component to send the emails and using FreeTextBox 3.0 to let the user enter the body for the email. I have not specified a charset property (since FreeTextBox generates the HTML itself)

    charset is not a property of the html body. It should be a property of the message object.
