Re: [users@httpd] Internal Server Error - strange characters "ę" and "ł"

Eric and David, thank you both for the advice, it was really helpful and I've fixed my problem.

It appears that a script a colleague wrote as part of the EPrints software made use of a UTF8 module, but only on one field of the data where it's ussually necessary. In this instance it was on a name field which doesn't typically require it.

thanks again for the advice; it's greatly appreciated.

James Kerwin,

When strange characters cause HTTP error 500, this is usually caused by
a mismatch in specified character encoding. Make sure that your form
page and your Apache configuration file both specify the same encoding.
For most of the world, the current standard encoding is called "utf-8".
Make sure all of your HTML and other Web files, and your Apache
configuration file (httpd.conf or other name) all specify the encoding
"utf-8". Then most of the world's languages can be used without problem.
