Stock Magento installation was meant to run only with UTF-8.

Factors include database tables, http headers, import conversions, locale settings, etc.

Why do you need other charset?

Thanks for your answer.

In fact, I am using special characters such as é è à (french accents).

Those characters are not recognised and are converted into strange ones: “?” for example.

As a result, I cannot validate the XHTML on “http://validator.w3.org”.

The only way I found is to convert “é” as “é”, but I think UTF-8 was able to recognize special charcters.

Am I wrong ?

PS: same problem in the back office.

Ah I see. Seems like a bug ofMagento! The title bar ignores all html entities entered anywhere in the page, however, if you enter the accent character directly to the Manage Store/ Store View Name, it does show up, but not with the entities.

So I googled the htmlentities, perhaps adding a DTD for entities is needed for Magento?
