encoding of web data / umlauts

Hi,

I'm having some trouble with data extracted from German Amazon. All Umlauts are funny characters. I wonder whetehr the same is true for French etc. Any way to change that?

Eg:

Code:

Durch Zufall stößt ein Philosophiedoktorand in der Bibliothque Nationale auf einen vergessenen Exzentriker, der im 18.Jahrhundert die Pariser Salons eroberte.

Cheers!

Re: encoding of web data / umlauts

Hello,

Sorry for this late reply.

Frenkx committed on CVS a version that should fix this problem. You may try it by downloading this file:

http://cvs.gna.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/gc … oot=gcstar

Save it over the file with the same name in lib/gcstar/GCPlugins/GCbooks (I supposed you were talking about books).

Let us know if it fixes your problem.

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
