Pablo Viquez' Blog:
How to use json_encode with ISO-8859-1 data '" Part2
August 03, 2009 @ 07:57:10

As he mentioned in a previous entry on his blog, Pablo Viquez found a few issues with character encoding and the json_encode function. He revisits this in a second look at getting it to cooperate with ISO-8859-1 data.

One solution that I did, in order to preserve the character set was to encode the data before using the json_encode function to use just A-Z, a-z and 0-9 characters, instead of sending text with accents or symbols. One encoding that fits perfectly in this schema, is Base64 Content-Transfer-Encoding. (see base 64 explanation below) This leads me to the solution: Encode the ISO-8859-1 using base64 and decoded in the client using JavaScript.

He includes both a code example for his solution and downloadable code for you to try it out yourself.
