Weird output when using special characters

When you’re using special characters in your HTML and the output doesn’t look like you expected, you’ll need to change a line in apache’s config file:

Open the file /etc/http/conf/httpd.conf in your favorite editor (vi) and search for the string AddDefaultCharset. This causes your weird output. You can either delete this entire line, or you can change the UTF-8 setting to your own locale.

Don’t forget to restart apache.
