Unfortunately both suggested methods seem to change the accented characters into question marks. Which (somewhat ironically), just raises more questions.

    Oh dear. I was sure that was going to work.

    Are you sure that it's changing them to question marks? i.e. are you sure it's not just that your terminal can't display the unicode characters? Sorry for stating the obvious - but you need to view the output in a browser, or something else that can display unicode, or check the hex values to see if they're correct.

    Alternatively, you could work around the problem by doing the input cleanup in a different way, but I think your original approach was correct and it should work if we can get perl to treat the strings as unicode.

    The fact that it does something different does make me think that it might be working, but it's showing up another problem somewhere.

    I might not be online much for a couple of days (I'm actually in an internet cafe in Vientiane, Laos...) but I would suggest drawing attention to this thread in the chatterbox at a busy time to get someone else to look at it. It seems to have gone quiet. Or perhaps it would be justified to start a new thread with your problem more narrowed down.

    Good luck...
