iWeb doesn't follow web standards

Recommended Posts

I want to help a friend to avoid using MobileMe by letting him use the webspace from his provider. To troubleshoot his site made in iWeb, I created my own iWeb minisite and published it on both MobileMe and the webspace from my own provider (different from my friend's).

 

It just looks aweful on my own webspace (see screenshots)

It seems that special characters like é aren't written as

é

Instead, the utf-8 character is used, and if your web server doesn't support it, the text will look aweful.

 

MobileMe version: http://web.me.com/rvanbelzen/

My providers version: http://members.home.nl/rene.van.belzen/hardlopen/

 

Does someone know of a workaround for this?

Don't use iWeb? Give RapidWeaver a try. It's like iWeb on steroids. I can't recommend it enough.

Before my friend asked, I never used iWeb, because I don't like the lock-in model of the application. However, he is only somewhat tech savvy, and prefers the drag and drop features of iWeb. I guess that if his provider hasn't set up the web server properly, like my provider hasn't, he should buy a yearly subscription to MobileMe, or buy RapidWeaver and brush up on his English.

Don't know if it helps, but there are German, Italian, French and Danish language support forums for RW as well.
