Hi Ranchers,

How do I convert a String from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 encoding?

I tried using the CharsetDecoder and CharsetEncoder classes but some special characters like bullets etc are not getting converted properly.

Here is what I have been trying. I hope it makes sense.



Will appreciate any thoughts/suggestions on this.

Thanks in advance,
Basu.

Could you post some code with sample data that shows the problem?
Ie create a string with the problem characters using \uxxxx and then run it thru your code to demonstrate the problem. Print the results and post it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
