email Meta Information Content-Type


Example

The Content-Type meta tag is for telling the destination rendering engine how to process text and special characters. You should encode all special characters anyway (e.g., & becomes & for an ampersand) to be safe, but it’s worth keeping this line in there anyway.

utf-8 works for most cases

<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
</head>

or

<head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
</head>

depending on your doctype.
