I recently submitted an application to a UK carrier for certification. The carrier came back to us with one issue stating:
"Non-UTF8 characters found in menu list" . Everything appears correctly when we are testing.

Is there anyway to
1) determine what characters are appearing as Non-UTF8 using an emulator such as Sun's WTK
2) ensure that all characters we are using are UTF8

Thanks!
Greg

hi Greg,

did you get anywhere with this one / get any more info?

in our experience, the Sun WTK (104) behaves correctly wrt displaying characters, as do all devices i've come across. this includes showing garbage if you have attempted write a String which contains non-UTF chars, (usually happens if you your editor is in iso-8859 mode or somesuch).

btw, are you transmitting any of these chars in request URLs? or loading via properties files?

cheers, dan.
