    Unhappy Spanish accent problem

    Hi, I have a submission form that contains field values that have letters with accents. Also a textarea field that a person can type characters with accents. The problem is when the page is submitted it goes to a page that reads the information and then generates an auto acknowledgement letter to the person and to us. The accents then are converted to ó not what they actually are supposed to be. I have tried both the html way of inserting accents (&oacute and copy and paste the () but no luck. Any solutions for this.

    I have this same issue with PHP, I finally gave up and used a string replacement routine.

    What kind of string replacement routine did you use? Do you have an example? Also, I would be doing this in asp so I am sure it would be different but maybe I can get an idea if I saw it. Thanks. Oh and by the way when I test it in IE I get totally different symbols than in Mozilla. Go figure

    I use PHP, and here is what I have:

    Global Foreign Character fix script:
    PHP Code:
    <?php 

    $string 
    "Cześć";

    // allhtmlentities : mainly based on "chars_encode()"  by Tim Burgan <timburgan@gmail.com> [http://www.php.net/htmlentities]
     
    function allhtmlentities($string) { 
        if ( 
    strlen($string) == 
            return 
    $string
        
    $result ''
        
    $string htmlentities($stringHTML_ENTITIES); 
        
    $string preg_split("//"$string, -1PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY); 
        
    $ord 0
        for ( 
    $i 0$i count($string); $i++ ) { 
            
    $ord ord($string[$i]); 
            if ( 
    $ord 127 ) { 
                
    $string[$i] = '&#' $ord ';'
            } 
        } 
        return 
    implode('',$string); 


    echo 
    $string;
    ?>
    A simple string replacement with HTML equivalents... I use something like this in a JavaScript email encryption script I wrote.

    PHP Code:

    $ent 
    = array( 
    'a'=>'&#97;',
    'b'=>'&#98;',
    'c'=>'&#99;',
    'd'=>'&#100;',

    'Z'=>'&#90;',
    '@'=>'&#64;',
    '-'=>'&#45;',
    '.'=>'&#46;',
    '_'=>'&#95;'
    ); 

    $string strtr("$string"$ent);
    $privacy strtr("$privacy"$ent);
    $string str_replace('&''&amp;'$string);
    $privacy str_replace('&''&amp;'$privacy);
    $astring "<a href=\"$string\">$privacy</a>"//test
    echo "$astring"
