Forum OpenACS Development: Re: User Smart Search Widget with Ajax
My understanding of character encoding is a bit hazy, but this (old) thread might help:
ns_write [encoding convertto utf-8 $response]
I'm forcing the encoding to be utf-8. It seems to me like ns_write is ignoring the server's encoding (possibly an AOLServer bug). In your standard exit:
the HTML response to the browser gets the wrong encoding, but the ns_log command, for example, has the right server encoding. It's an workaround but it's working.
