Subject Charset Problem?
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2001 09:56:56 GMT

does anyone know this problem. Having an HTML form the user may type
words like 'Köln' (ö -> special german character). In one case the
server receives the parameter 'Köln', in the other case it receives only

On the other hand the server has no problem to build + send HTML pages
that contain words like 'Köln'.
The Browser is always the same (i.e. Opera 5.0, IE 4.0).
The application is the same.

Could it be a charset problem? But I think by default, a server parses
parameters using the common Latin-1 (ISO 8859-1) charset. That works for
Western European languages.
