    Danish Characters Issue


    I have a website in Danish.

    The problem is some characters are not displaying correctly. Some of the data on my site is hard coded while some data comes from ms access database.

    If content type is Utf-8 then hard coded content look okay but data that comes from db starts to show some square boxes in place of some Danish characters.

    While if content type is iso-8859-1 db content looks okay but hard coded content show boxes.

    I am using Classic ASP with MS Access database.

    Please advice.

    It sounds like you need to do something about the character set that the database uses, not your asp code.

    I don't know, sorry. Maybe the access online help has some information, or check the microsoft technet library.
