Subject Re: JSTL SQL
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 20:51:16 GMT
OK i have confirmed that this is not a jstl issue or a driver issue. As 
when i connect with odbc i still get the '?'.  And when i use the usual 
non-jstl method for connecting with both drivers i still get '?'. 

Has anyone else ever had this issue.  The special characters are correct 
in the database but not through jsp? 

If i use the iso entities e.g. &lsquo; &rsquo; they show up correctly 
(using escapeXml="false") but the user enters information in and they 
don't know how to convert these characters.  Are there any functions I 
could use to convert user entered data to iso entities?

Never mind, I was thinking MySql not MS SQL Server. That certainly 
will not help you.
