"?" and "é" with IE6 font: arial

P: 2
With IE6 and the font: arial the "?" and "é" doesn't look like the rest of the text. It works fine on Firefox and it works fine if I change the font. But I need to make it work with the font arial because the client ask for it. Could somebody help me?

Right now, in the IE menu, select View, Encoding. then select Western European (ISO) and this page will refresh. If it looks like your problem page, place the following as the first item under the <head> tag in your web page:

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

You can select others to see their effect on page content. If I select the UTF-8 character set when viewing this page, your é appears as a Chinese character. The meta tag defines the character set to use on a page by page basis.

If you don't use meta tags to define the charset, just leave the encoding set to Western European (ISO) as your default.
