Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.16) Gecko/20080702 Firefox/2.0.0.16
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.16) Gecko/20080702 Firefox/2.0.0.16

If my site is accessed as "http://www.jimrhuff.com" then special characters are displayed as "?"

If my site is accessed as "http://www.jimrhuff.com/index.html" then the special characters are displayed correctly

If I use the special character entity code such as è then it doesn't matter which entry path is used.  Unfortunately, my namo web editor converts an "è" to the special character, even in the html code.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. http;//www.jimrhuff.com  yields ? marks in place of special characters
2. http://www.jimrhuff.com/index.html yields correct display of special characters
3.


Expected Results:  
special characters in netscape and IE display properly irrespective of entry method into home page

Shouldn't firefox operate the same?
