Hi Everyone, I'm in the process of creating xml files (using RPGLE) to send order details to our clients. One requirement is the need to replace (encode) special characters such as < > '"& No problem there, my scan can identify and replace where necessary. The problem arises with characters not native to IBM such as the Copyright sign, Registered sign, Bullet point etc. These characters have presumably been copied in by users from a web page or Word. My question is, within my scan I need to know the Hex code for all potential symbols. (x'B3' for Bullet etc) Is there a reference somewhere please? Many thanks. Neil.
