Hi Charles

Just to let you know everything is now working :)

In the actual html contact form page I added: <meta
http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />

Previously I only had: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=utf-8" />

So just to recap my code looks like this:

******************************START HTML PAGE******************************

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="es">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Contact Espa&ntilde;a</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="es" />
<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no" />
<meta name="distribution" content="global" />
<meta name="robots" content="noodp" />
<link href="file_name.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body>
**** HTML FORM HERE ****
</body>
</html>

******************************END HTML PAGE******************************

Many thanks for your help and a fantastic script which I will be
recommending to other :)

Best regards,

Hi .

My pleasure to assist.

Some thoughts:

Can you try it in plain text too? Does it come through ok then? Are you
sure you are using the correct character set? Are you also putting the
character set in the form code too?

You might be better to use an HTML template for the email, then you can
write it exactly as you desire. Just off the top of my head, I don't think
you need to put the character set in the HTML for the email as it is already
in the email header.

There's more information in the script instructions about the above, which
you might have seen.

Let me know how it goes.

Best wishes.

Hi Charles



Thank you for the quick response J



I've just started testing your form script which certainly is far more
comprehensive than other on the market and looks to be great value for money
J



I'm having problems with the character output though and have attached 1 of
the HTML emails sent via the form. The message should have displayed This is
a test Espaa but as you can see the output shows as This is a test
ä ë ö &#376; España.



The character set is iso-8859-1 and I have also set the value:
$encode_name_subject = 1; As I will require special characters to be
displayed in the subject eventually.



Other variables I've changed are: $html_format = 1;



As an observation looking at the code:

$html_open = "<html><head><title>$subject</title></head><body><table
cellpadding=\"".$table_cellpadding."\"
cellspacing=\"".$table_cellspacing."\"
bgcolor=\"".$table_background_color."\">"; $html_close =
"</table></body></html>"; $content_type = "html";}else{$html_open = "";
$colon_sep = ": "; $html_close = ""; $content_type = "plain";}



^ Should <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"
/> be inserted directly after <head> and also inserted for the Auto Response
if being used?



When I look at the HTML email headers via MS Outlook all appears to be
correct.



A solution would be greatly appreciated J



Many thanks,

Hi .



Thank you for your question. I see you have made your purchase, thank you

for that.



Yes indeed, you can state the encoding to be used if need be. You will see

the option for this in the script configuration.



Any questions, just let me know.



Best wishes.
