    Hi Friends,

    I have a big problem and I don't know how to solve it, Please give any idea.

    I'm using a free wap gateway (it's name is kannel) in a Linux redhat 7.3.

    The problem is when: I wrote any vowel with acute accent in my wml code, for

    [1] my wml test card:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
        <do type="prev" name="Voltar" label="Voltar">
      <card id="N400001" title="Kannel">
        <p>oacute: -๓-</p>
        <p>#243; -&#243;-</p>

    My phone (Motorola i550,i30sx,i85,i60c) doesn't show correctly the ๓ neither
    &#243; and it shows the รณ instead of ๓.
    The same happen with my up.sdk 4.1 simulator (connected trough my
    But a nokia phone shows the ๓ correctly! and my nokia toolkit 3.1 simulator
    show it well, too.

    I check the wap-gateway code, and I can realize that the wml_binary has the
    \xc3\xb3 instead of ๓ and it is right, I think so.. because it is the UTF-8
    code, but why my phone can't show it correctly.

    Any idea?

    I will be grateful with any contribution,
    Thanks a lot and Regards,
