Technical question

  1. Yesterday, I posted a critique of the POW using the Ms Word "cut &
    paste" routine. Naturally enough, the apostrophes and inverted
    commas have been replaced by question-marks. Interestingly, this
    only appears when I access my forum posting through the posting
    history on my workspace. If I access the POW from the PNet home
    page, the text appears as it was typeset with the apostrophes and
    inverted commas intact. Why is it so? I don't understand why the
    same text responds differently. Should I be selecting the HTML option
    under the text box? Your explanations and advice will be greatly
  2. ask Brian! i guess the oracle database is not set for multilingualism.
  3. Thanks, Fernando. For some reason, I expected Brian to chime in on this one.
  4. I don't understand why this happens either, else I would fix it. The Oracle database supports multinational characters and we put the right content-type on the pages, but often they get garbled.
  5. and so he did! Brian i wish i could know a bit more of databases then i'll be able to help a little
  6. i know mysql, but ORACLE IS ANOTHER THING
  7. It's a bit "like rubbing the lamp" and the Genie appears. Thanks, Brian. If you get it sorted sometime, I'd love to hear the details. Thanks Fernando, for your input too.
