ADO recordset returns UTF8 instead ISO-8859-1

I'm using ADO to read an access database using ASP.

My problem is, that i get e.g. ü instead of

Does anyone know y?

I am using following doctype:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/
TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

I am using following contenttype:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1">

It might help if you showed us the code you use to retrieve the value from
the DB and forward to the client.

Here are a couple of potential scenarios.

1.) The response codepage is set to 65001 but your meta tag says its
iso-8859-1. The sort of corruption you are seeing is exactly what I'd
expect to see. (BTW, the http-equic is real ugly. Use Response.ContentType
and Response.CharSet that modifiy the header properly).
2.) The field actually does contain ü instead of , use an independant tool
like Access itself to take a look.

Finally why use ISO-8859-1? If you going to the trouble of using xhtml you
might as well go with UTF-8 as well.
