How do I get these strange characters when I try to "echo" the html string?
I am sending the echo to mail function via PHP from variable that includes HTML code. The strange thing is, that this
shows up AFTER the string.. but I do not manipulate with it anymore. The charset of mail function (the attachment) is same as charset of HTML code.
Encoding problem, maybe it tries to display binary code?
You should use htmlentities if ou want to display HTML
// Outputs: A 'quote' is
Those characters are probably "junk" data in your string. Depending on where the string is coming from these characters could be: extra TCP data in the socket after the HTML page, or extra data in the file after the HTML page, or someone else actually put these characters in their HTML page (perhaps their file was accidentally corrupted, or for some other reason).
You could consider using the htmlMimeMail class for handling the email. So you can avoid the nasty email internals.
This is the problem I have.. I use the code from Internet source, the $body is generated invoice and this send the email.. Those characters are at the end of HTML source file but I don't understand why the hell they are there :(
$to = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; $subject = 'Invoice'; $random_hash = md5(date('r', time())); $headers = "From: email@example.com\r\nReply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org"; $headers .= "\r\nContent-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"PHP-mixed-".$random_hash."\""; $body=rtrim(chunk_split(base64_encode($body))); //define the body of the message. ob_start(); //Turn on output buffering ?> --PHP-mixed-<?php echo $random_hash; ?> Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="PHP-alt-<?php echo $random_hash; ?>" --PHP-alt-<?php echo $random_hash; ?> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Hello World!!! This is simple text email message. --PHP-alt-<?php echo $random_hash; ?> Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Text Emailu. --PHP-alt-<?php echo $random_hash; ?>-- --PHP-mixed-<?php echo $random_hash; ?> Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8"; name="faktura.html" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: attachment <?php echo htmlentities($body); ?> --PHP-mixed-<?php echo $random_hash; ?>-- <?php //copy current buffer contents into $message variable and delete current output buffer $message = ob_get_clean(); //send the email $mail_sent = @mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
