    ExternalInterface and Text Encoding

    cnunciato
      Hi there:

      We're using ExternalInterface to pass data from the Flash player (in this case, an ActiveX control) into a SWF, and we're noticing that Unicode characters (e.g., é) are getting mangled on the way in (e.g., é). Given there's no room for an XML encoding declaration on the inbound ExternalInterface call (we're not passing XML as content -- just using XML to declare the function and parameter names and values), is there property that needs to be set on the COM object to make sure string data gets handled as Unicode? Or is there something that needs to be done in ActionScript to handle them thusly?

      Thanks in advance -- hope this makes sense and any help would be greatly appreciated.
