Default charset issue.

Hello all i have an issue

I have a big client wanting to move all of his sites to my server. BUT i moved one of his sites and im having an issue.

http://viper.wssnoc.net/web40/web/index.html

if you look there, alot of the characters are replaced with question marks. my server has the SAME charsets installed in httpd.conf as his server does. but yet it still does this. his sites are the only ones i have this issue with. can anyone give some insight as to what to look at next? im lost.

Please set the correct character set the correct default charset in the apache.conf, apache2.conf or httpd.conf file.

If the charset is really correct, then the files might have been copied with the wrong charset. Open the files on the shell and check if the charset apperas correct there.

no luck falko when i put that default charset, it kills another website that uses JP text. it replaces the symbols with the funky code until i reset the default to utf-8. Also when i download the web pages with the issue form the new client, the code displays correctly. it sonly when viewed from the web page and from nano on the server it shows those question marks or bad characters
