[TinyOWS-users] Non-ASCII characters not accepted in layer title

Special characters must be handled in the server responses and in the database transactions.

That's why was addedto TinyOWS the following config attributes:

/tinyows at encoding /map/metadata at wfs_encoding  
/tinyows at db_encoding /map/metadata at tinyows_db_encoding  
GetCapabilities and other WFS requests seems to be broken when the xml response finds a character that 
doesn't belong to the current encoding (UTF-8 by default).

I suggest that you set the tinyows at encoding (config.xml) or map/metadata at wfs_encoding (config.map) to 
a ISO-8859-X, where X takes values from 1 to 9, to support the special characters you handle.

Cheers from México

It looks like adding this layer into config.xml breaks GetCapabilities and it seems to be because of "MML-lentokentät". With "MML-lentokentat" it is accepted. Is this limitation coming from the standard?

<layer retrievable="1"
         title="MML-lentokentät v. 2011"
        abstract="Maanmittauslaitoksen 1:1000000 airport-taso" />
