Am running apache 2.5 on windows 2003 machine with CF MX7.
Have not changed the default settings for char set encoding.
Have 2 websites that are encoded using for english char sets and another website that must display Japanese SJIS.

Problem seems to be on apache.
Have tested the CF app server and when I run CF locally using inbuilt web server then all is fine.
But on the production server with apache my pages are not displayed accordingly. Not a browser issue as I will swap the encoding to sjis but it all comes out garbled...also my pages use sjis in the page encoding and it also works in development mode.

So after resonable deduction must be something with apache..
But the default settings already have sjis as a char set and also ja as a language...

What should I be looking at???

Do you use <meta tag in the html pages with the charset?

for default carset see

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#adddefaultcharset

I would use utf-8

Also see
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_negotiation.html

If you work with PHP I found another solution
Code:

<?php
$charsets = array(       
'iso-8859-1', // default       
'iso-8859-2',       
'iso-8859-15',     
'utf-8');
$pref = http_negotiate_charset($charsets, $result);
if (strcmp($pref, 'iso-8859-1')) {       
 iconv_set_encoding('internal_encoding', 'iso-8859-1'); 
 iconv_set_encoding('output_encoding', $pref);       
ob_start('ob_iconv_handler');
}
print_r($result);?>

Found the problem..
I needed to add <html langauage ja> to each page..
I thought by just having the char set was enough but obviously not.

Thanks
