<%
Session.pagecode = 708   ' for Arabic (ASMO 708)

Hi,

When you use Server.HTMLEncode in the  ASP page that contains Unicode or double-byte character set (DBCS) data (in your case arabic), you may find that the data gets corrupted.

Becuase Server.HTMLEncode method does not recognize Unicode and DBCS data formats and converts the data as if it were in single-byte character set (SBCS) format.

Steps to reproduce...

1. Create an ASP page, and paste the following code into the page:
=====================
<%@ Language=VBScript codepage=950%>
<!--
This example uses a Arabic (ISO)
-->
<%
Session.CodePage = 28596
%>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=iso-8859-6">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<FORM action="" method=post id=FORM1 name=FORM1>
<INPUT id=txtValue name=txtValue>
<INPUT id=submit1 name=submit1 type=submit value=Submit>
</FORM>
<HR>
<%
Response.Write(Server.HTMLEncode(Request.Form("txtValue")))
%>
</BODY>
</HTML>
=====================

2. View the ASP page in a Web browser.
3. Enter a Arabic characters into the HTML textbox, and then click Submit.



Plz tell me wheter its working or not ......




If you arabic charset is different than the above plz see this link.....
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/Author/dhtml/reference/charsets/charset4.asp


You need to modify the code in 2 places according to your charset......

1st place:
<%
  Session.CodePage = <Code Page Number>
%>

2nd Place:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=<Preferred Charset Label>">
