Plain text in french in a contentplaceholder RRS feed

  • User-1860075769 posted

    I have some content text in french and when I publish it to my website all the special characters are stripped out. I don't know if it has anything to do with Localization and/or Internationalization. How do I have my french text preserved.

    If you can set your server' regional setting, check if it's french.

    Or try checking your files' encoding:  File -> Advanced Save Options

    And the <globalization/> section, try changing it's to the same with your server's settings. But usually utf-8 is okay.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Over the net I found :

    System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New Globalization.CultureInfo("FR-FR")

    which I used in the page_load, but it did not work. Probably missing something. Pehaps it need a namespace ... but as I does not generate any error ...?


    However I also found:

    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

    which I used in a <script> </script> tag inside the declaration of the placeholder and It seems to work.

    Until next time

    You may set culture info in InitializeCulture(), which overrides the page's base class's method of the same signature.

    But [;)] I don't think it's the reason for your problem, and there is a globalization section in web.config. Try checking or setting these 3 elements:

    requestEncoding="any valid encoding string"
    responseEncoding="any valid encoding string"
    fileEncoding="any valid encoding string"

    And for the meta data content-type, your can try setting the charset to the same encoding of your page, as I said it's in advanced save options of the file menu~ But of course usually some common encoding such as utf-8 or your iso-8859-1 there is preferred~

    you need to override the InitializeCultureInfo of your page, and its where you set the new culture info.
