Subject [users@httpd] Rép. : [users@httpd] Hello all , right now im stuck with a strange problem and iwould
Date Tue, 11 Nov 2003 22:37:39 GMT
Thank a lot Kyle. 

I will check the RFC. I still need to know why TXT file with a e with an acute accent didnt
get the hex 0xE9.  Why if the URL is a TXT this work fine.. but this dont work for PDF..

But i still got a problem. These PDF are writen by public user by a documentation software
( it's not me who write them) and i can't restrict these user to use specific character. 
So im just doing these test because im sure ( oh god im sure ) they WILL use acent in the
future PDF names.

But i found something else. Ive read than a bunch of "hired specialist" make it work with
a specific conf file.  So i guess my problem is solvable by server configuration.  When i
get the conf file.. and read it.. i just pass out.   They just add all the module to the conf
file..  (( wtf.. ))

i will never .. ever configure a server that way..

LoadModule part of Config file whos suppose to work :

as you see these " SPECIALIST " add it all.. and its suppose to work with these setting ((
man this hurt.. these man are payed 10x more than me ))

So i need to find witch module (( if its ever linked to a missing module or something )) i
need for making my link to work.

If you have any imput of witch one, i would greatly appreciate.

RFC 2396 deals with URL syntax. Essentially all characters in the
URL should be represented as US-ASCII characters. Certain
reserved ASCII characters and characters not representable in
US-ASCII are supposed to be escaped. Escaping is normally done by
replacing the character by a percent sign followed by its
hexadecimal value.

In your case e with an acute accent is hex 0xE9. Browsers are not
required to support non-escaped URLs that contain disallowed
characters. The fact that Mozilla does the escaping for your is
just a nice touch. You should escape the URL in your HTML file,
which means that you should type it as

  <a href="">

That should work with any standards-compliant browser.
