I guess this is an issue with the font you are using and the (different) font on the end users PC.

Is this not a standard issue of Encoding?
The Encoding of the Xml is different from the encoding of the website.

The rouge charater could be Arabic words being shown in a single byte English font. If you aren't using double byte (Unicode) .?????

Hi Guys
I guess, it should be issue of encoding. while I am saving my xmlData on UTF-8 format and send the file to many websites and some parse well and some display with that strange character.

here is my code, i use to write xml data on file.

Thanks
strXml = XMLDATA;

System.Text.UTF8Encoding encoding = new System.Text.UTF8Encoding();
byte[] data = encoding.GetBytes(strXml.ToString());
string xmlParseData = encoding.GetString(data);
                
using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(xSavePath))
{
sw.WriteLine(xmlParseData);
sw.Close();
}

Open in new window
