Migration Problem: International Characters
Posted on 2003-12-05
I have a form in a ColdFusion page (note that it's a FORM and NOT a CFFORM).
The user fills out a text box and submits the result to another ColdFusion page.
I used to be running my pages against ColdFusion server Version 4.X and everything was fine. I migrated to a ColdFusion MX server. Now when the form data arrives to the second page (the action page) all the international characters are garbled up. For example "é" becomes "@". I see this using <CFDUMP var=form.textboxName> from the action page.
Obviously the problem is in the international language configuration of the ColdFusion server (since the client PC did not change / Yes I am positive that nothing changed on the client...no new patches...no new browser config...nothing). Did anyone have this problem?
I can't figure out where to change the settings for language under the ColdFusion Administrator.
I got some users comming to use this app in about 2 hours so I rated this high. But even if I can't fix it for today I am still going to need a solution eventualy!
I welcome any and all suggestions.
