Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to howto run 3.2.5 with European characters on nsd8x

If you're trying to read it in to a tcl string from a blob and then display it you will need the ns_returnbinary command from my binary support module at I think you could probably set up one of the files in your tcl directory to do a
rename ns_return ns_return_classic
rename ns_returnbinary ns_return
rename ns_write ns_write_classic
rename ns_writebinary ns_write

and use these commands all the time but I haven't tried that.
I don't know how these commands might interact with your other efforts.
