Ok, thank you.

I work on a PC.
Do you think if i use my patch on a Mac, accent problem will solve ?
I’ll test it…

I’m pretty sure that on Windows Max 4 uses whatever the Windows 8-bit extended ASCII is. In any case, not UTF-8.

So no matter what platform you are on, you’ll need to write your own converter to/from UTF-8.

Hope this helps,
Peter

Hello,

latest Max is using Mac Roman on both Windows XP and OSX, I’m using a
server side macRomanToIso function in php to convert the text server
side, then iso to UTF-8. :)

Odd, it doesn’t use MacRoman in the Max window. I had to modify a number of Litter Power externals because they had assumed MacRoman and were trying to print things like ‘≤’ and ‘π’, and it all came out looking just a bit odd on Windows.

But whatever, if you’ve found a solution that works for you, great!
