Can anyone explain why my website on Infinityfree displays the £ sign as A circumflex £ - in other words Â£ ?
It does not happen when I open the website offline in its original format, only after it is uploaded. I have tried deleting the text through FTP, clearing the browser and then uploading the file again, but it makes no difference. It also makes no difference whether I am using Chrome or Microsoft Edge. All the Pound signs display as “Â£”.
Feel free to mark my answer as solution if my answer has fixed your issues.
To explain why i suggested you that code, it tells browser to read the text in utf8 format, the default ones renders regular-english characters properly but not other characters.
