in reply to Writing HTML file with UTF-8 chars

The solution was
  • Add use utf8;
  • add binmode OUT, ":utf8"; after the file open
  • Do not use encode() on the values
Thanks for the comebacks everyone.

    On the second point: add binmode OUT, ":utf8";after the file open

    I think is better, to use binmode OUT, ":encoding(UTF-8)"; because ':encoding(UTF-8)'checks the data for actually being valid UTF-8, while ':utf8' just marks the data as UTF-8 without further checking.
    Please check binmode.

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