Validation tooltip does not display the Norwegian letters æ, ø and å

I have upgraded Data Bridge to the latest verson and received jquery validation instead of spry validation. I have noticed that the validation tooltip does not display the Norwegian letters æ, ø and å (see attached image). Also notice that the X to close the tooltip is replaced with ?

Do you have a workaround for this?

If you need to troubleshoot directly, see private message.

the UTF-8 character set does not support all Norwegian characters.


you will need to HTML encode the ones that are not working:
http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/html40/entities/latin1.html

you could change the character set to the Latin 1 character set, but that doesn't support all Norwegian characters either.

I am not aware of any 1 character set that does support all Norwegian characters.


the code for the close text was set to:
closeText: "?",

i changes it to:
closeText: "x",

The UTF-8 character set fully support all Norwegian characters. I have used this character set for many years. For some reason they does not display correctly when I use them in a validation tooltip, but they looks perfect for the rest of the page. However, I was able to solve the problem by HTML encode the Norwegian characters used in the validation error messages.

Thanks for looking into this.

if i changed the character set of the page to latin 1, it shoed those characters but not others.

maybe it;s a jquery conflict with some characters, not sure, but HTML Encoding is the only way I could it show all characters correctly
