Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to i18n woes on a very simple site

Posted by Alex Sokoloff on
While we're discussing charsets... Does anyone know which character endodings ASCII is compatible with? Is it all of them? I know, for example, you can open a file of ASCII characters as utf-8 or iso-8859-1, and all will be well. But does the same carry over to other commonly used encodings, like shift_jis or big5? Hmm, easy enough to test....
