Hi there,

I need to display content returned from database using ISO-8859-1as the charset. I tried to put the following in a template:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" /> However, it is always changed back to UTF-8 by Cascade after saving the template (without errors):
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

What should I do to use ISO-8859-1 to display content in Cascade? Thanks!

    Hi Allie,

    Try creating a new region in your Template - perhaps something like: <system-region name="CHAR-SET"/>

    Then, create a new XML block that only contains:
    <meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="Content-Type"/>

    Plug the XML block into your new region and see if that does the trick.
