Foreign Language Umlauts are Not Displayed Correctly in APEX

(Doc ID 1919869.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (formerly HTML DB) - Version 4.1.00 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Foreign Language characters with umlaut are not displayed correctly.
German, French, Italian, and Spanish special characters are displayed incorrectly.

In the APEX login page, when clicking a language to switch to Deutsh, Espanol, Francais, or Italiano, the umlauts are not displayed correctly for all languages. The problem exists not only in the text but also the links and page header. All special characters appear as 'two squares' for Internet Explorer and/or �� for Google Chrome. English displays correctly.
