I have some Japanese characters that I need to convert back from ISO-8859-1 to it's origional form.

So I have a form that I use the 'accept-charset="ISO-8859-1"' option on the form tag. The form converts my japanese character to "き" which is stored in my db but I need to use Coldfusion to decode it back to the japanese character for searching through a API call.

Thanks for the help,

I did try this...

        chardecode=CharsetEncode("&##12365;", "utf-8");


but then it gave me...

Parameter 1 of the CharsetEncode function, which is now MY JAPANESE CHAR WHICH WON'T SHOW here, must be a valid binary object.

Maybe I have to convert the string from my form something other than.. 'accept-charset="ISO-8859-1"'
