Language specific xml

Hi all,

I am just trying out SBO 6.5. Our customers have finally decided to upgrade.

Since we are loading all of our customized / proprietary forms via xml, I am experiencing trouble in 6.5.

In order to be able to use german characters in xml we used

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

6.5 does not allow this any longer and produces an error while batchloading. Removing the above will load the form correctly as soon as all special characters are removed.

However we germans kind of see them as part of our language and cannot really do without them 😉

Can anybody help on this issue?

TIA Lutz Morrien

    Hi Lutz,

    I work with Hebrew and so I need a little more characters different from English. Our xml's starts with

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>

    May be it'll be usefull for you?

    Best regards,

    Mark

    Hi,

    Starting at version 6.5 - UI API works with XML in <b>"UTF-16"</b> encoding only.

    Common language runtime uses Unicode UTF-16 (Unicode Transformation Format, 16-bit encoding form) to represent characters. This, as Mark said, should support a lot of other characters, as well as german.
