    I've got a problem with an encoding which seems to as a mix out of UTF-8 and ISO 8859-1.

    In the Unicode-Charts a € (Euro-sign) has the hex20 AC.
    If I convert this into UTF-8 I get a hexE2 82 AC.

    (hex0010 0000 1010 1100 converted to UTF-8= hex1110 0010 1000 0010 10101100)

    Now the receiving System gets this, handles this as a UTF-8 encoding, but can't display the character.
    What the receiving System can display is a hexC2 80, which is the UTF-8 encoded form of hex80.

    Hex80 is right if you use ISO 8859-1, but not for the Unicode character-charts.

    What is the receiving System using to display characters? A UTF-8 encoded ISO 8859-1??
