Showing Foreign Language Letters


bravo14

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am developing a site that needs to be in 3 languages, English Italian and Spanish, the English is displayed correctly however when I change it to show Italian, some of the characters are not displayed correctly, for example the e with the accent at the top.

 

How can I get the letters to display properly regardless of language selected?

This is the code for the page

 

<?php
//include_once('includes/connect_inc.php');
if(isset($_COOKIE['lang'])){
   if($_COOKIE['lang']=='it'){
       include_once('includes/defines_it.php');
   }
   else{ include_once('includes/defines_en.php');
}
}
else{
   include_once('includes/defines_en.php');
}
?>
<?php function auto_copyright($year = 'auto'){ ?>
  <?php if(intval($year) == 'auto'){ $year = date('Y'); } ?>
  <?php if(intval($year) == date('Y')){ echo intval($year); } ?>
  <?php if(intval($year) < date('Y')){ echo intval($year) . ' - ' . date('Y'); } ?>
  <?php if(intval($year) > date('Y')){ echo date('Y'); } ?>
<?php } ?>
