    Sending UTF-8 characters via HttpService

    Spiff79

      Hi all,

       

      We need to send some UTF-8 characters to a remote REST service.  This service is already working correctly and is accepting UTF-8 chars from other sources correctly.  When sending chars using our Flex application and the HttpService class, these chars are garbled when they arrive to the service.  I'm new to Flex so I have a few questions:

       

      1. What is the default charset used for String instances in Flex?

      2. Using what charset does the HttpService send data?  (POST)

      3. If the answer isn't UTF-8 for these 2 questions, how can I set the charset when sending data?

       

      Thanks!
