Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Mysterious characters appearing: A-circumflex, A-tilde

Postgres is set up using the default character set and probably mostly default options.

Does anyone know if the OpenACS internationalization patches can be applied to AOLServer 3.4.2 and where I can get the most recent version?

Walter, yes, people have forward ported the internationalization patches from 3.3+ad13 to later 3.x servers, I think including 3.4.2 and 3.5.x. But, very few people use those patches. And the AOLserver team decided to ignore them (a long time ago now) in order to focus their effors on 4.0.

It should be both easier and better for you to simply switch to either 3.3+ad13 or 4.0. Note that OpenACS officially supports only 3.3+ad13, but will also support 4.0 soon (I think as soon as it's officially released, and has nsopenssl working).
