Special characters
« on: June 30, 2019, 06:06:13 am »
Hello,

I came across a problem when invoice is produced. All special characters become "???". For example, Thai/German/etc. in the States/Cities are not displayed correctly on the invoice. Anyone has any ideas how to fix this? Thank you so much!

VM 3.4.2
Joomla 3.6.5

If you open the invoice in the Firefox browser and select 'Tools' > 'Page Info', does it show UTF-8 as the text encoding?
