Hello That ist not a problem of Mozilla/Firefox. You are sending an incorrect http-header information. Test your page in: http://web-sniffer.net/ You send: Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7[CRLF] See: http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-headers-charset Delete utf-8 and it works. Best regards Wolfgang
The page claims to be UTF8 in the headers, but the data is not actually UTF-8 (it's ISO-8859-1, looks like). To evang to fix the server to not claim that the data is UTf-8 when it's not.
