Preventing Text Corruption On The Web

The web is becoming increasingly interactive, as companies advance from simple publishing applications to applications that accept data from customers, partners, employees, and soon other applications in the form of web services.

However, users can be anywhere in the world, on any platform, entering data in any language. Even if your web application is not intended for international users, native users may enter characters that you did not anticipate. A proper design, based on a solid understanding of the web's architecture, can insure that data corruption does not occur. This presentation explains the web's architecture with respect to text processing, character encoding negotiation. For Progress users, new (9.1D) capabilities of Progress WebSpeed applications are described.

Topics include:

Unicode/ISO 10646 for Progress Users

The Unicode Character Standard (ISO 10646) is the encoding used for text by all modern technologies and especially on the Web or for any application that needs to support multiple languages for UI or data content. This presentation describes the Unicode standard, the particular encoding UTF-8, and how Progress supports it. After attending this presentation you will be able to identify the changes that are needed to Unicode-enable your application and take advantage of the benefits of Unicode's multilingual capabilities.
