We are facing issues while rendering special characters on live site after upgrading CMS from 2011 SP1 to 2013 sp1 and DD4T 1.24 to DD4T 1.3.
We are getting ã© instead of é on rendered page where as we entered the content in RTF as Café. We published that Component as DCP to file system. I can see that the content is correct in DCP XML file.
Checked our Target settings for Unicode(utf-8)
Added globalization tag in web config
Add utf-8 meta tag at page level
