    I recently purchased your upgrade to 4.0.3. I uploaded some files to my shopping cart using Fetch. Since then I have this set of characters showing up when the cgi cart is used €ÆÖ

    I read in a previous post that ISO translations can change some characters. MY ISO translation option was on. Could ISO translation being on during an upload cause those characters to be uploaded? If so, how do I find them and get them out of my shopping cart?

    If not, do you have any other ideas. I need to get this fixed it looks bad to my prospective customers.

    The script works fine except at the top of the actual cart box I get these characters €ÆÖ. Also, this is sent out in the customer and merchant emails about each order. It looks real bad but I am at a loss to find its origin.

    I have made sure everything that is ascii is ascii and same for binary.

    I have have seen the hex values to be 80,C6 and D6.

    I appreciate any help you can give me.

    If you want to see it on the cart just go to http://www.healthypetcorner.com/FRR/allergydog.html and just add to cart a pet food selection. You can cancel once you see it displayed.

    Thanks in advance,

    Those characters are different than they would be if you didn't have Translate ISO characters on, but I don't think you want the original characters either. I'd recommend removing the characters from your HTML before re-uploading.

    Jim,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I have looked in the html, scripts and data files and can't find anything readily apparent. It happens only going through the script. This makes me think its in a data file or some other file I uploaded using Fetch.

    I have tried the remote menu and view text files but I can't seem to find anything out of the ordinary. If you can tell me how to find those characters I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,

    Randal

    Thanks for the suggestion. Before I could try your suggestion. I found an add in to BBEdit that displays hex values. I found the strange hex values in the main cgi program. I then found a copy of the script without the hex values and uploaded the new copy. To this date, I still don't know what would have caused the hex values to appear in the program. Anyway, it is fixed now and that has taken a load off of my mind.
