Subject Excel character encoding, Java, and you
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2002 16:44:42 GMT
Yes, you.  I had naively assumed that Excel represents characters the same 
way that a Java "char" primitive type does.  As I have learned recently, that 
is false.  My question is, what is the standard encoding of MS Excel 
characters and what is an appropriate conversion mechanism between 
Java "char" type encoding (ISO 8859-1, right?) and Excel encoding?

Thanks, Dave
