Yes, I do not know how to handle the extended ASCII characters, and I
hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.
As I said earlier, I use Net::OAI::Harvester to... harvest the data. I
use MyLibrary to save the data to a MySQL database. I then write
reports against the database in the form of a simple XML stream and
feed the stream to swish-e for indexing. I know swish-e is unable to
index multi-byte characters, and search results come directly from
swish-e, not MyLibrary.
Maybe I should draw search results from MyLibrary and not swish-e to
display characters correctly? If I draw content from many global
sources, then how do I know what character set to use for display?
