    Asked by nickbh on January 26, 2017 at 12:56 PM

    I have a form that displays fine when used as with a direct link or as an iframne.  Howvere if I export the source code the diacritics characters are replaced with incorect characters.


    See - good>



    See - bad > (Source Code version)



    What do I need to add into the source code to make the diacritics characters display correctly?

    That is odd, I just tried your form source code, an the special characters shows up:

    Please share the URL of the page where you have embedded the source code, so we can check further.

    OK - So I worked out the problem.  I was saving my local html/php as ANSI format and not as the UTF-8.


    Soon as I did that it worked absolutely fine.
