I am trying to send data that a user enters into the system via XML. The problem is that some special characters are causing an error, in particular the '–' character which is different to the normal minus sign (the only way I know how to get it is using outlook, entering a minus sign then return and it makes the sign larger).
How can I detect these either on entry or when returning from the database?
In Firefox it displays � which I don't mind but Internet Explorer returns an error so the page doesn't load.
Any help would be much appreciated.
