Using Unicode-HTML in XSL Transformations

32 Views

Hello everybody.

We are using XSL data with XSLT Transformations to generate webpages in html. Inside the html pages we have to use bullet points:

• data1

• data2

• data3

Because bullet points belong to the special characters of the microsoft codepage we have a unicode problem. The requirement is that the transformation will work in both unicode and non-unicode systems.

If we copy the bullet point character from i.e. Word into the transformation the html pages will be rendered correctly in the non-unicode systems but not in the unicode system.

If we use the html unicode encoding "& # 8 2 2 6;" in the XSLT it's the other way round. Now the html pages are not rendered correctly in the non-unicode system (a rhomb # shows up). (Using "& b u l l ;" in the XSLT it won't compile).

So what can we do to fix this problem? The problem is that only our Web Application Server is a unicode system. But the systems with the preview function are non-unicode systems...

Thanks in advance for any help!
