I am having problems with dataassist not showing my special characters. I have attached an example. (C), (TM), & (R) symbols do not show up properly.
The code that DataAssist generates simply outputs the content from the database. If the characters output are not correct, then they are likely incorrect in the database columns. How were those rows entered into the database? Did they happen to come from copy and paste from Word, or some other external program?
If they came from Word, then it sometimes uses characters that do not translate well into HTML characters.
Do you have access to database content directly from the database to see what characters are actually being stored in the database?
