Subject RE: Umlauts and other Special Characters
Date Wed, 06 Dec 2000 12:14:51 GMT
Fotis,
 I have tried that...the Umlauts were returned as "_", not as the correct
characters. Klaus-Peter's solution worked fine -> replacing the umlauts with
their ASCII code.

Thanks all for your hints...

Stefan, 
Just specify the encoding in your fo file or your xml file like this: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

then you can use German umlaute directly in your text; they will be 
encoded correctly by the parser.
And yes, Fop does support Umlaute.
