Using Coldfusion MX 7.0.2, I encountered problems submitting
Umlauts properly via AJAX to a CFM.
The CFM page receives the Umlauts as not renderable and the
#ASC( )# code returns 65533.
So i checked #getEncoding("form")# and it returned UTF-8.
I set the encoding to iso-8859-1 and - tadaaa - it returned
the UTF-8 character for ü for example, which is: Ã¼
After spending some hours of testing how to resolve this, I
am now just setting the form-data to iso-8859-1 and afterwards
resetting it to utf-8.
Still I am a bit confused of what exactly I am doing. Setting
it from UTF-8 to UTF-8 in the end...?
I tested the requests on the same server environment but with
php, and always had proper results.
Maybe someone has an answer to this.
