The character encoding should be sent in the HTTP header, don't depend
on META tags.
"For PHP, use the header() function before generating any content, e.g.:
header("Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8");"

You should also make sure the other headers are set correctly, such as
Content-Language if the page is specific to one or more languages.

First I tried the <form accept-charset="utf-8"> didn't work then I tried
the utf8_encode function in php, didn't work, guess because it encodes
iso8859-1 and maybe the weather wasn't really
iso8859-1 at that moment
I read your message again, and inserted a META tag in my doc, and it
works as intended.
Thanks a lot!
