    Problem with character encodings in verity search?

      Hello all,

      I hope i am posting this in the correct category, if not please guide me to the correct one.
      I am trying to use a verity seach on chinese content. The content going into the collection is utf-16(comming from a mssql database). I have a verity collection in traditional chinese and one in simplified chinese. But the data i put into the collection won't be retuned when i search on it. And even when i get results(sporadicly) the "summary" field contains different characters then that i put into the collection.

      Has anyone had any experiance with this or can anyone point me out what i'm doing wrong?

          not 100% sure but i think you want unicode encodings not the "language" ones as
          i think those are codepages. and i also don't think you want utf-16, utf-8 is a
          better choice w/cf.
