    red flag CP module displaying symbols in accents

    Good day. This might not be the right place to ask what to do, but I am not entirely sure the problem is with the module.

    I am using the latest Canada Post 1.50 contribution (by Dr. byte, I believe) with my Zen Cart. When I ask delivery prices on checkout in french, I get the right rates, but have accents replaced with black "?" symbols (IE: "Colis acéléré" is displayed as "Colis ac?l?r?").

    My accents DO display properly all over my site and have set "@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'fr_CA.utf8');" in my CUSTOM french.php file. This problem is happening on both my Zen Cart stores:

    www.servicesinfosl.com
    www.boutiqueimpasse.com

    It is only the results coming back from Canada Post XML that returns what seams to be the wrong coding. Anyone have a solution / workaround and have also encountered the same problem?

    Are you saving your custom French language files as "UTF8 without BOM"?

    I think so. The original files were translated in house using the v1.5.0 distribution English source code. I use Crimson Editor to edit php files. Only Canada Post service description does this. I have no issues anywhere else concerning this.

    Thanks for the reply. I just checked and that mod is already in place. :-(

    I have found the solution! Thanks to DrByte's suggestion, I actually added to the original code:

    Code:
    $methods = array();
          for ($i = 0; $i < sizeof($canadapostQuote); $i ++) {
            list ($type, $cost) = each($canadapostQuote[$i]);
            $type = html_entity_decode($type);
            if ($this->cp_online_handling == true) {
              if ($method == '' || $method == $type) {
    And added the following:

    Code:
    $methods = array();
          for ($i = 0; $i < sizeof($canadapostQuote); $i ++) {
            list ($type, $cost) = each($canadapostQuote[$i]);
            $type = utf8_encode(html_entity_decode($type));
            if ($this->cp_online_handling == true) {
              if ($method == '' || $method == $type) {
    This fixes permanently the problem. I guess that Canada Post XML does not return UTF-8 encoded results. This FORCES UTF-8 on the results.

    Hope this fix is IMPLEMENTED in the CANADA POST module and helps others cursed with the many accent problems. Thanks DrByte!

    This thread has been moved out of the Bug Reports area since it's not a bug with Zen Cart itself.
