French and Portuguese accents lost in live browsers:

Although perfectly appearing in the Dw’s real-time preview São Paulo and Révision become messed up when out in live Chrome and Firefox on the net. Serif or Sans-serif? Or another trick?

font-family: Gotham, "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;

and in a different place

font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif;

Both give the same mess. I though Crome was the problem, but same goes for Firefox.

What charset are you using? It will be at the top of your code, you should see something like this for your first few lines in Code View...

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">

 

The meta charset line should be set to utf-8 as above. If it's not, change it and your accents should reappear online.

If it still doesn't work, share a link to your page here and we can take a look at what else might be causing the issue for you.

The accents are rendering correctly here using Vivaldi, Chrome, FireFox, Opera and Edge on a Windows 10 machine.

as I already state above, are you utf-8 encoded ?

but in complement to what said Jon, you have to first write the META tag reflecting the encoding, but you also have to be sure that the file is really UTF-8 encoded...

File > Page Proerties, and be sure that UTF-8 is really selected, in case not, select it and apply it to the page

Thanks for reply Birnou,

Is this out in the internet? Or just in your box only with  Dw Real time preview? That is the difference for me.

Nobody can view your local computer files In Preview except you.  All we can see is the Internet version at your URL.  It looks OK to me.

 

Refresh your page with Ctrl+R or F5.  Clear your browser's history and cached data from the computer's memory.  If you're unsure how to do that, consult your browser's documentation.

It worked finally! 

File >   "Page Properties, and be sure that UTF-8 is really selected..."

I did not now that although it was already selected I had to RELOAD it again to make it active.

Thanks anyway for productive support!
