Lost characters RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1047196555 posted

    I've noticed that after running a build on the deployment project characters like accents, british pound are removed, I've hunted around and noticed that others have reported the issue but I haven't seen any solutions.  My understand is that during the build/merge process the file is being encoded with the default windows encoding unless there is BOM. 

    Id appreciated any guidance on this issue.

    All I've worked thru the issue and thought I would include my solution

    Firstly ensure you have the latest version of the web deployments project installed, I noticed that even though I ran the installation file and it told me I had the latest version that I didn't have the latest version of the asp merge exe. I uninstalled and then reinstalled the web deployment project.

    With this inplace use the FileEncoding of the globalization web.config setting to control the output of the files during the web deployment build process, my target charset was to a French audience and the western europe charset was what I requried windows-1252 I think.

     Hope this helps others.
