I am attempting to form fill a select box on a form. All values both with spaces and otherwise normal characters works just fine. I need to select an option in the select box (dropdown) that has this letter: ě

So what I would like to select is BěRNEHUSET PLEJE

If i select another one, for example: HELLO

That works

It also works with:


So it is not the space. It is the ě

So, I have tried the following:

1. BěRNEHUSET PLEJE - does not work
2. BØRNEHUSET PLEJE - does not work, I have taken the capital ě from here: http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm
3. BøRNEHUSET PLEJE - does not work, I have taken the lowercase ° from here: http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm
4. And both options without the trailing ; - does not work

So the question is how I do this.

On google I can find a post that has this exact problem, but the link does not work and I am unable to find it on the forums.

Any idea how to do this?

Thanks in advance,
