I have followed Kostas Zotos instructions which are brilliant, thank you very much.
My basic example worked and that's wonderful thanks but when I then try and implement this in a site we have taken over to help a client, the French character just does not want to come through at all.
Things I have done:
Made sure XML is saved as UTF-8
XML uses CDATA
Have embedded fonts
Have embedded specifically
Have used another font altogether
Have placed the character in another text field outside of the MC it's meant to be in and set that as static text which works.
Have recreated the text field thinking it may have corrupted somehow.
Have put another text field next to it outside of the mask, changed the name and added the characters to the text field.
Is there anything else I could try that I might be missing?
I have now also plugged Kostas Zotos' example in directly into the site I am working on and his sample works which leads me to believe there might be something wrong with the XML. Could a malformed XML be the cause of something like this? All other special characters are coming through expect for this sucker.
I have also created an entirely new XML file, saved it as UTF-8 and now the French side of the site wont load.
I have now also checked and ensured that the XML is not malformed using Firefox and it all looks good.
In the attached example, the blue circle between the --- ---- is where my characters should be appearing which is happening in the text field to the left.
