ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP") for chineese characters

Hello,

I am using ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP") to instantiate the xmlhttp object to make a request to the server.  The responseText property has the english and chineese/Hindi characters.  The english characters are fine.  However, the chineese or hindi become funky characters.  Here is the code snippets:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
objXMLRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP"); //microsoft.xmlhttp");
objXMLRequest.open("POST", url, false);
objXMLRequest.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
 
//Make sure you escaped your strings prior to building this string.
objXMLRequest.send(a_strRequest);

//get the status response      
strReturn = objXMLRequest.responseText;

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the strReturn has some data like this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
<OPTION value="1"  >2K8SCMCOLL</option><OPTION value="2"  >नमस्तॿ</option><OPTION value="3"  >ä½ å¥½</option>
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the funky characters above are correctly stored in Chineese in DB.
