Could the CSS Sculptor cause data entries to be displayed wrong?

Could the CSS Sculptor cause data entries to be displayed wrong?

Hi, I have just upgraded to the complete subscription and wanted to give the CSS Sculptor a try.

I like the results very much.

With this new page as a template, I tried to create a catalog and a detail page for my internet-shop with Master Detail Page Set. Unfortunately some of the entries are displayed like this "�bergr��e". It should look like this "Übergröße".

I thought this might be yet another Dreamweaver bug, but when I tried the same thing with the template page I created myself, all the entries display correctly.

Is this a known issue?

I don't think it has anything to do with the database, because there are no problems with my old template page.

I appreciate any input.

Instead of using the new template page, I copied the body to the old template page, and now everything displays correctly. Weird though, that it would not work with the new template.

It is probably something about the charset being used: look for a tag similar to this in each header:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

The charset setting can control how various langages are displayed.

Hi Ray,

the meta tag on the page that works (created from a Dreamweaver template) goes like this:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />

The meta tag on the page created by the CSS Sculptor reads:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />


I am not familiar with charsets, but maybe this is a flaw with CSS Sculptor. I would think it should create a page with charset that displays foreign languages as well.

The database has this charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8).

does changing the charset fix the problem?

Yes, it does. I created a new page using CSS Sculptor and set it up with a repeating table. When I opened it in Safari, one of the words looked like this "F&#65533;&#65533;e".

When I switched the charset to "charset=ISO-8859-1" the word displayed correctly "Füße".

I still think, CSS Sculptor should generate pages with the correct charset, I mean with one set up for other languages.

I agree... css sculptor should use the charset specified in your Dreamweaver preferences.

We will make sure to resolve this issue in the next dot release, but for now you can easily change it manually after the page is created.
