Accents on Proz...One moment they display, the next, it's all gibberish

I've noticed a weird thing happening with this site. Sometimes all the accents people place on their words show up just fine and other times, they are completely garbled (weird symbols, etc.)

Is anybody else noticing this? I've tried to add Portuguese to my profile page as well as add the accent to my name and it's frustrating when at times it ends up looking awful.

Encoding Oct 10, 2005

Check the encoding on your browser when this happens (view - encoding - and then whichever one is suitable for the language you want to read).

I've had this problem moving between Greek pages and then back to Swedish, but that's always fixed it!

within a single Kudoz question. The term in the header looks fine, but in the text below, the accented letters are garbled. And I don't touch the encoding.

It worked! Still, it makes me wonder, was my browser switching encoding all by itself before? Weird. Oh well.

Hi Cidália,

Same happened to me at about the same time. A few other colleagues also complained about it. Accents were on and off. Now it`s fixed. Probably just a temporary bug at Proz. Not your fault, neither your browser`s.
Relax, your PC and you are healthy.
