utf-8 or other unicode support
Wed Jul 20 19:45:15 CEST 2005
Its my understanding that erlang strings are not utf-8 or otherwise
I need to develop a web application to support Latin and Asian languages.
For HTML pages, I"m assuming I can just code them in the proper language
and yaws will handle things (This is a big assumption and I would like
feedback on this).
What about handling data in mnesia or dets?
In years past when a DB did not support utf-8, but my Java strings were
utf-8, I could encode them to binary for storage. Unfortunately, this
diminishes query ability. In addition, since most of app data was in
Latin characters, I had to encode/decode fields just in case which added
lots of unnecessary overhead.
What have others done?
thanks, ke han
