no command in htaccess works to set charset


Recommended Posts


I am preparing my site for mobiles etc, and keep checking the tests and headers,

and one thing I should do is to add charset utf-8 to the http header.

In this link to there are several ways to add utf-8 as charset to the htaccess

And in the header I should get this when checking a .css file:

Content-Type: text/css; charset=UTF-8

However adding any of them in the link to my htaccessfile I get this as result in the header:

Content-Type text/css

Anybody have an idea why it does not work in htaccess.

The php files I fixed without htaccess adding a php header with the charset on every page.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if you've sorted this out yet or not but in the event you haven't I believe there was (is) a bug with the latest version of the webserver software we're using that causes issues along these lines. Please contact our helpdesk team (htttps:// with this issue and we can let you know for sure what is going on here
