Subject Multiple Encoding (ISO-8859-1 and UNICODE) with C2 and Postgres
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2001 10:48:48 GMT

We must create a multilanguage site (English, French and Japanese) with C2 
and a Postgres backend and we ran into serious problems with the different 

The architecture is now completely UNICODE/UTF8 (Postgres stores data in 
UNICODE, the web browser receives pages in UTF8).

The problem is that for french browsers, the data returned from forms (if 
the user types something in a text field) is encoded and returned in 
ISO-8859-1. So we get into a case where in a form, we have data that is 
submitted part in ISO, part in UTF8 (first part, if a user enters new data 
in a text field, and second, if the user leaves the data untouched in a 
second textfield - because the browser gets the default value in UTF8).

Do you have any idea of how this problem can be solved? Even if this implies 
changing the architecture...
