I've been plagued with problems on accent characters.

Working in a mainly francophone province, I encounter these accents daily. It was bad enough to deal with OEM characters (Win 95/98) translation to ANSI (Win XP/7).

For XAP/XML, I use a routine that convert all special characters to an escape sequence and < > & ' " #

Where the XML data has { for special characters. That is:

IF CAR$ > '@7F@' OR POS(CAR$,"<>&'@22@#") > 0 ! That is GT LT AMP Quote Double-Quote Sharp
LET CAR$ = '&#' + STRIP(STR(ASC(CAR$))) + ';'

Yes! It is a pain

Wish we could have a function to encode special characters and the HTML entities
