Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Asian Characters and UTF-8 Encoding - Any experiences?

Richard, in your AOLserver config file, do you perhaps have some settings like these?:

ns_section ns/parameters
   ns_param OutputCharset iso-8859-1
   ns_param HackContentType 1

ns_section ns/MimeTypes
   set mime_plain {text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1}
   set mime_html  {text/html; charset=iso-8859-1}

   # See also "" for advice on
   # character sets and MIME types in AOLserver.

   ns_param Default     $mime_plain
   ns_param NoExtension $mime_plain
   ns_param .txt  $mime_plain
   ns_param .text $mime_plain
   ns_param .htm  $mime_html
   ns_param .html $mime_html

That's what I use in AOLserver 4.0.10, but note that I am purposely serving only iso-8859-1 content. If you are trying to serve UTF-8, some of the settings above would probably break stuff for you.
