Hi all,

Our company is starting to do business with chinese companies, so we need a reply form in html. Now we have that for the "normal" languages, but it doesn't work for chinese, the submitted characters are all messed up there. Any suggestions?

You need to set the correct encoding in the HTTP header and HTML output.
