Hello, Probably my knowledge about code sets is too limited. My thinking was, that UTF-8 includes the same characters above ASCII 128 independent of the platform and makes data transfer between different platform compatible without conversion of a char set. Migrating a LC 6 program to LC 8 I just recently needed an extra MacToISO(), before passing a text from my UTF-8 LC 8 program via PHP to a UTF-8 MySQL db on a Unix server.
Now my German Umlaute don't get corrupted in the MySQL db and everything is fine, but I would like to understand the technical background. Why do I still need MacToISO() in LC 8 on a Mac and even worse, I didn't needed it in LC 6 in the same program. What am I missing here? Thanks for rerailing me Tiemo _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list email@example.com Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
