    Swedish characters

    I'm getting reports that a non-Swedish version of the N3650 phone fails to display the Swedish characters åäö.

    I'm using this HTTP header:

    Content-Type: application/xhtml+xml; charset=iso-8859-1


    and this HTML header:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN"
    "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <title>MyTitle</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <meta name="Language" content="SV" />
    </head>

    It all displays perfectly on our S60, S40 and S45 phones. But aparently not so on non-Swedish versions of the N3650 (and maybe other phones as well).

    What can I do to fix this?

    solution

    Well.. I tried using HTML entities (&auml; &aring, &ouml; ...) instead of &aring;&auml;&ouml;. Funnily enough, the characters showed up.

    As the characters obviously exists...and as they are part of the iso-8859-1 standard character set...why isn't it enough to just specify the character set in the HTTP headers and then use &aring;&auml;&ouml; directly?

    I'll just have to accept it, I guess...
