Subject Re: Help with filter affecting Chinese words in request parameters
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:16:40 GMT
Thanks to everyone who replied.

One of the devs found a workaround...we set the filter to set the encoding
of both the request and the response (previously we only tried setting one
or the other...apparently both have to be set correctly)

Regards,

Roy
