Displaying Multibyte characters from ASP

Posted on 2004-11-07
Last Modified: 2006-11-17
I am reading chinese characters stored in SQL-Server DB in a VB Dll and returning them to the calling funciton in ASP. I am getting the values as '&#xNNNN'. I want to display these values as chinese characters in a textbox in the webpage.
If I replace the '&#x' as '%u', then am able to show the characters. Is there anyother way of doing it, without replacing the prefix for hexadecimal values?

Thanks in advance.
