All On the subject of character encoding in .NET, can someone explain to me why the following happens; if possible? I have two files, test.asp and test.aspx. The content is as follows: <html> <head> <title>Character Encoding Test</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;" charset="windows-1253" /> </head> <body> ÐÑÏÓÏ×Ç: Äåí Ý÷åôå åéóÜãåé ôï E-mail </body> </html> The ASP file renders in the browser as the correct Greek characters, but the ASP.NET file renders as incorrect characters. Is this something I can address programatically, rather than changing any .NET configuration files? I have found quite a bit of information about .NET and character encoding, but most of it is going over my head at the moment. Many thanks in advance!
