    javascripting for Espanol

    I am running a spanish version of some asp pages and a hunk of code for javascript validation won't run in IE 6.0 but does run in Opera (7.23). I suspect the culprit is diacritical characters in the alert messages... Does this make sense and is there a nice painless solution?

    TIA

    no - that sort of thing definately qualifies as a 'painful solution'. what I ended up figuring out was, the javascript code works and the page looks nicely formatted if you specify Laten1 as the char set for the page (UTF-8 throws errors because of unexpected characters in the javascript). ISO-1 allows the javascript but the webpage looks bad.

    So, set the char set to Latin1 and all is good....

    This internationalization issue seems complicated! char sets much much more so....
