ASP and UTF-8

Posted by vineld, 12-14-2007, 05:58 PM
I am having trouble creating and writing to a text file in ASP (classic) on an IIS server. I need the text file to be UTF-8 but it will not happen..., any ideas?

What exactly is the problem? You cannot read it with asp code later. or you cannot read it in some type of text editor?

When i was working with my AJAX, the XML files needed to be created with UTF-8 encoding... so, bellow is the code to create a blank file with above character set...

Thanks a lot, I will try that. Earlier on I used this: set fso = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject") Set act = fso.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath(file_being_created), true, true) act.WriteLine("") And, well, it spits out the text file correctly although it is never a UTF-8 file which I also need.
