Hello everybody,

I am forwarding this email from one of our IT guys (Federico). It would be great if someone could help us with this issue. Everybody knows the encodings come from the hell and we can't dodge ArcGIS in this case.

Thank you very much.

> I'm having encodings issues using ArcGIS 10 and PostGIS 1.5. The reason is the postgis connector of the ArGIS interoperability tools doesnt support utf-8. There is no other encodign i could possibly use since i'm working with arabic characters only supported in utf8.
> As I understand, ArcSDE has another postgis connector, and it might even support utf8. So, is there anyone of you who has tried ArcSDE against postgis using utf8? does it work?
