   Problem: special characters replaced by different encoding in HREF

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


This is my HTML end result:

        <a href=""content_recherche2.asp?p00=S%C3%A9rieyx," Herv%C3%A9">Sérieyx, Hervé</a>

As you can see I am using special (french in this case) characters. For some reason the character "é"  or "%E9" is replaced by "%C3%A9". This is the XSL code:

        <xsl:for-each select="contributor">
                <xsl:variable name="contributor_name" select="@name"/>        
                <a href=""content_recherche2.asp?p00={$contributor_name}"><xsl:value-of" select="$contributor_name"/></a> <br />        

The encoding is right when it is simply printed on screen but different when used in the HREF tag. I'm assuming special characters are forbidden in URL's and therefor replaced by unicode (?) characters. However I have no idea how to revert them to their original encoding.

The header in my XSL is

        <xsl:output method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"/>

I've tried setting it to UTF-8 but that didn't change anything. The header in the XML is

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>

Thanks in advance,
