    Unanswered: Postgresql character set problem - chars show up as ?

    I'm using Postgresql 7.2, Tomcat 4.1.24, JDK1.4.2 on Linux. I set the charset to SQL_ASCII in the connection string for the JDBC driver. This used to work on Tomcat 4.0.3 and JDK1.3.1.

    The database contains characters like the copyright sign, and the funny upside-down quotes that MSWord uses. These now display on the site as ? instead of the correct characters.

    Any idea of what else i need to do?

    You need to find out what character set(s) can represent those signs, and set the PG encoding accordingly. You might want to try unicode encoding.
