See Re: How to handle UTF-8 content with Win32::IE::Mechanize as problem has nothing to do with STDOUT or WWW::Mechanize (an entirely different module), it is all about Win32::OLE, which isn't utf8 by default

    ... And suggesting an alternative would not be wrong either.
    Moreover,Win32::IE::Mechanize is just Like "the mech" but with IE as user-agent. Period...

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.

      But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :)

      Mechanize doesn't support javascript, while iexplore does support javascript -- pretty much the only reason folks use iexplore when they can

        "...But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :).."
        Maybe you need re-read my Original Post, where I stated it clearly that Using your OP, I don't have Win32::IE::Mechanize, installed so I used WWW::Mechanize.
        Infact, I started answering by saying "Why not use ..." Please, how more suggestive can I be?

        "Mechanize doesn't support javascript,.."
        That is an open secret

        "..while iexplore does support javascript.." So, do WWW::Mechanize::Firefox. There always an alternate.
        Moreover, the OP didn't say he MUST use Win32::IE::Mechanize. Did he/she? :)

        If you tell me, I'll forget.
        If you show me, I'll remember.
        if you involve me, I'll understand.
