What character encoding is used to encrypt, URL encode and post the XML Data Feed? Is it UTF-8 or ISO 8859-1 throughout?
The reason I ask is that I had trouble getting the XML test post script
to work. It turned out that the PHP was working in ISO 8859-1 on my dev box but my browser claimed the test script was outputting UTF-8. So when decoding the URL and decrypting an encrypted string it's pretty important that the character encodings match the source character encodings.
Is there any way that the test script can be clarified and/or updated to force the expected encoding(s) (e.g. via
) so the test matches the actual feed? Alternatively, sample php.ini settings might be helpful.
