Hi all,

I have an WFS layer which is provided in UTF-8. The strings are parsed incorrectly which ends up in hieroglyphic labels.

Now there's no way to specify the encoding in the layer's properties. The drop-down menu is just empty for any WFS layer.

thanks and best regards,

Could you please post here the url of the server and the layer name?

This is a (old MapServer) server issue. The response to GetFeature has a heading but the content is in UTF-8. I don't think we want to complicate the code to workaround the server issue. MapServer 7.0 has now better support for UTF-8.
