Hi everyone, I've looked around online for a solution, but I'm pretty new to ruby and programming in general, so I feel like I'm hitting a wall here. I'm retrieving data from Hpricot that I'd like to store in UTF-8, but I can't find a function to convert hex NCRs like: á Surely somebody's had to do this in the past that could point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Well, after some more googling, I found a solution. If anyone was curious -- require 'cgi' require 'iconv' n = "á" n = CGI.unescapeHTML(n) n = Iconv.conv("UTF-8", "ISO-8859-1", n)
