I have a problem where I load in data from a json file and some of the character in the file a Norwegian å and ø appear as questionmarks. These characters don’t turn up in the table where I use the data. I have a meta tag in the index.html <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">.

Any suggestions to what I can do.

It is almost to embarrassing to tell. The text file with the data (the json file) was not encoded in utf-8. I simply went into Notepad++ and changed the encoding of the file and it worked.
