RE: [xml-dev] UTF-8 encoding problem for euro symbol

I believe that x80 is the code representing the Euro symbol in Microsoft code page 1252. So although you say you are using UTF-8 encoding, it seems you are actually using CP1252.
Either change the C++ program to use the correct Unicode codepoint for the Euro symbol, or tell the XML parser (by means of an XML declaration) that you are using CP1252.

Subject: [xml-dev] UTF-8 encoding problem for euro symbol

Hi All,


We are facing problem encoding euro (€) symbol in XML body.

We are using UTF-8 encoding and not sure what might be wrong.


Here is the flow of our program:


1)      C++ string is getting formatted with different currency symbols.

2)      Above string is getting passed to XML parser.

During XML encoding we are getting the error.


I see hex value of “0x80” in the string for the euro symbol instead of “0xC2 80”.  Is this the problem? What can we do to correct it?


I will really appreciate if someone can help us in this or give us pointers.


We are seeing this problem on XP.
