Download Problem

Hi there

I’ve got following strange problem.
Follwing code:
send_data(originalString, :filename => “foo.bar”, :type =>
‘text/plain; charset=utf-8’ )

I send the file “foo.bar” to the browser. If I save it, the charset
isn’t utf-8, its “ansi”

What must I change, when I want utf-8?

I don’t know. But the problem appears with FF (OSX & Vista), Safari and
IE7

any idea?

Is the problem that the browser thinks it’s ansi or are the actual
bytes going over the wire ‘ansi’ ?

My point was that the content_type you pass to send_data won’t change
the data, so if what you’re pulling out of the database isn’t utf8
then the browsers won’t see utf8 either.

I think I’ve to tell the hole story…
i must generate a spezial datafile (encrypted xml) for a 3rd party
application.
the contend is utf-8,but the file itself not… I think it could be a
problem with the header-informations?
Any idea?
