Re: accents in caption in xml

I have the same problem even if i follow the Faq 6 which says :

6: Non-English characters are not showing in the captions. Why?
To allow non-English characters to show, you must save your XML document with 'UTF-8' encoding (in Windows Notepad you can set this is the 'Save As' dialog). Check the documentation for your text editor.

I have tried with UTF-8 or iso-8859-1 and it still doesn't work for the  accented character : é, à, è, û, ê.

Is there a solution?
Yves did it worked for you ?
Is there a special trick with the brand new version with html caption format ?

thank you ,

It worked out by saving it as UTF-8. I have no further problems.

Good luck to you,

Hello there. I am a new customer.

I have the same exact problem.
I saved my xml with utf-8 with notepad and still cannot see my accents á é í ó ú. I have my site stored on an ftp account, and if i download the xml and edt it i can see the accents are there, but can never see them in my captions.

Are we missing out on something else?
