Sorry if this is a familiar post.
Using Internet Explorer, some pages I load with Portuguese text show OK and others (PROZ pages, for example) do not and show symbols such as boxes etc. where characters with diacritics.
I presume this is some Option setting but cannot find it. Much appreciate any help - I could read the questions posted then!

Hi David Aug 12, 2004

In IE, go to the View > Encoding menu.

Theoretically, if 'automatic' is checked there, everything should be OK. But in most cases it does not work properly. Click on 'More' and choose the encoding you wish. At ProZ.com pages Windows encodings are used, so you should choose 'Western Europe (Windows)'

HTH,
Natalia

Thank you Aug 13, 2004

Natalie,
You solved the problem! For some reason I had Unicode selected.
Thank you -I can actually see the questions on Proz now.
