problem with special characters

special characters , javascript , jquery Ede, Netherlands
  • 11 years ago

    Hello, I have the following problem and I hope someone could help me. I am using jquery autocomplete plugin. The problem is that I am loading a javascript array with the data to be hinted (completed). Some words have special character (specifically Skarsterlân). When I save that word using html special character as Skarsterlân , the word is hinted into the field as it should (Skarsterlân), but when I select that word, it shows as Skarsterlân .

    I tried the other way around and the problem reverts (it appears hinted as Skarsterl�n) and after being selected it appears as Skarsterl�n.

    Did someone knows a workaround for this problem. I would really appreciate some help in this issue.

    Best regards.
