I posted a similar question in the rails group but this is more specific
to ruby 1.8.2.
I read that ruby has problems with multibyte charsets. And I read that
there might be some problems with ISO-8859-15 related to REXML. And I
read that regex might have problems with ISO-8859-1.
Given the above problems (or rumors), which encoding is recommended for
use with ruby 1.8.2?
I’m certain both UTF-8 and ISO-8859-15 will support all the characters
I’ll ever use. And ISO-8859-1 only lacks a couple characters I might
use on very rare occassions so I’m just looking for a charset that will
cause fewest problems with Ruby.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
