    Hi,

    How do I get International Accent Marks and Diacriticals on the main page headline? I use the html code á and í but it does not show up on the page.

    Thanks,

    David

    Try to use the “number” code instead of the html code for special characters – a list of the most important numbers and html entities can be found here:

    Hi,

    Tried it. It did not work. Also, content next to testimonials is all blown up on Internet Explorer browser but not on Safari, Firefox or Chrome.

    Ok, now I know the problem. Quicksand (the font which is used for font replacement) does support these characters but Kriesi excluded them to decrease the file size a bit.

    Please use quicksand_all.font.js instead of quicksand.font.js

    @ Dude: when you instruct David to use “quicksand_all.font.js instead of quicksand.font.js”, where exactly do I have to go to make that switch? I found the files in the js folder but I’m clueless about what to do to activate the all.font file [sorry if this is a really stupid question. And my apologies to David for using his thread]

    In my case, the “content” of the page/post/portfolio entries already display international accent marks. However, the special characters are completely ignored if they are used on the “title” of the page/post. Any suggestions on how to correct that?

    As usual, your help is deeply appreciated!

    You can:

    1) Just rename quicksand_all.font.js to quicksand.font.js and delete the “old” quicksand.font.js before.

    OR

    2) Open header_includes.php located under framework > helper_functions

    and change following line:

    $quicksand = get_bloginfo('template_url')."/js/quicksand.font.js";

    to

    $quicksand = get_bloginfo('template_url')."/js/quicksand_all.font.js";
