Subject [users@httpd] Re: UTF-8 (was Accents problem with Apache 2 under windows)
Date Thu, 11 May 2006 04:09:35 GMT
It's a localization issue.  1.3.x used your local code page, whatever that
might have been.  Move files to another machine configured differently, and
they wouldn't be served.

2.0.x uses unicode file names - whatever filename you see in the file explorer
is exactly what you see on the site.  Most URL's are now utf-8 by convention;
this convention extends to httpd 2.0 on Windows (and on unix, but only by virtue
that most unixes use utf-8 now to store unicode file names).

If you access your file using s%C3%B3l.gif all will be well, that's the utf-8
unicode representation no matter -how- your system is locally configured.  And
almost every modern browser, IE, Firefox etc will understand such names.  You
can have an english system serving chinese character file names for example.
Since NTFS uses doublebyte character sets to store file names, using utf-8 names
on systems like Windows, Mac OSX and similar modern systems offers the most
flexibility.  Even DAV uses utf-8 for communicating file names back and forth,
if you author your website by using DAV to sync it.

Unfortunately, as you noticed, there can be an initial frustration period. 
Sorry about that :(  The -simple- way to find the translation is to just
explore your web site with mod_autoindex (don't set a default web page and
let Options Indexes list the document files) - and those links will give you
the encoding with no hassle at all.
