in reply to HTML Form > PERL Script in UTF-8 issue

I think you will find it much easier if you convert all your non latin text to &#xnnnn; format which your browser will understand, yet uses only standard Latin characters.

sub htmlX($) # Convert to Html &#xnnnn; notation {my ($s) = @_; my $t = ''; $t .= (ord($_) < 128 ? $_ : sprintf("&#x%04x;", ord($_))) for split( +//, $s); $t }
