Quote from: spiros on December 20, 2004, 05:57:29 PMCurrently I am using Windows-1253 which is pretty standard really. I could try using 8859-7 and let you know if there is any change but I would never risk trying UTF-8 again!
QuoteHi!I have tried using UTF-8 in the past but this created all sorts of problems so I had to revert back to standard Greek encodings. Still, I do not understand why Google cannot cope with Windows-1253 in this case, when it copes without any problems in other dynamic pages. Moreover, how can MSN search (http://beta.search.msn.com) index it without problems whereas Google can't?Thank you again for your kind feedback.Spiros> Hi Spiros,> > Thank you for your reply.
