    Special characters in html not showing up.

    I have some special characters(,,) in menu <div> and copy right symbol in footer which are not
    showing up in browser but in main div these are working fine.
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> is already included in head.
    some java script is also in the webpage. What is the problem? please help.

    Some symbols may not show because your computer does not contain the font set and/or your browser is not set to the correct Character Encoding (utf-8 is good). Changing browser's encoding is usually done from its View Menu. Unicode browser display test: http://home.tiscali.nl/t876506/entitiesTips.html

    Maybe a problem too...

    If you see squares or question marks instead of the language symbol(s) you need to make sure you have the language pack installed necessary to show the symbols. Be sure to set the language attribute and the direction the language is read:

    Why should I use the language attribute in web pages? - http://www.w3.org/International/ques...qa-lang-why.en
    Language information and text direction - http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/dirlang.html

    Would be nice if you gave link to page with problem.

    The page is on the localhost.
    The problem is only in top menu and footer, in middle of the page every thing is ok.
