Euro Sign using XML, VB, Java
Posted on 2002-05-20
I am using a VB client to pass data to a java servlet which processes the data (passed using MSXML3 on the client to Xerces-1_4_3 on the server) and writes it to an oracle database. The problem I am having is with the euro symbol (€). I convert it from € to € using Replace method in VB and then I pass this XML (UTF-16) to the server which is telling me the document is mal formed - Org.sax.parser exception.
I presume that Xerces supports the Euro symbol so I am kinda stuck.
