Hi,
My current MFC/C++ project needs to convert an encoded URI by Internet Explorer to the decoded original text.
The problem is that some chars like ä, ö, ü, á, ó... which are language specific (german, ...)
are differtly encoded (? UTF-8)
I am looking for a function which does this jobs, and considers these special characters.

All functions I have found till date only consider alpha - numerical chars and few others.
I would also consider using Winsock, if I knew the related function name.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Sina Falahati

'InternetCanonicalizeUrl()' (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384342.aspx) does that job.

Thanks, seems that both functions do not support UTF-8, and that some browsers (old browsers) don't do this either :)  There is a nice implementation for converting to UTF-8 for javascript on the net with support for old browsers.
I used the approach of calling a Javascript function from my C++ programme using HTMLView and getting the results.

Since both functions work for usual encoding, I split the points among you...

Cheers, Sina
