Characters not displaying properly

I can't find how to properly enter and display certain chars from my db to my jsp page.
For instace, the word "Li'l" is displaying as "Li�??�?��??l".
things like TM,R arent working either.
the "'"(apostrophe) is entering into the DB without a problem- but it wont display. The (TM) is not storing or display properly.
Is there anyway to copy text directly from wordpad into a textbox and have it store in mysql and display in jsp correctly?
Also, this might be a question for the mysql section:
If i'm doing a query like thisSELECT ID, brandName, productInformation, productName, productImage FROM blahblah.uk WHERE brandName = '" + brand + "'"; and " brand + has an apostrophe- the query screws up. Is there a way around it at all?
here is my entire DB connection code.
<%
Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver");
conn = "jdbc:mysql://" + host + "/" + db + "?user=" + user  + "&password=" + pass;
Connection Conn = DriverManager.getConnection(conn);
Statement SQLStatement = Conn.createStatement();
String Query = "SELECT ID, brandName, productInformation, productName, productImage FROM blahblah.uk WHERE brandName = '" + brand + "'";
ResultSet SQLResult = SQLStatement.executeQuery(Query);
%>
<%
          while(SQLResult.next())
                 x_ID = SQLResult.getString("ID");
                x_brandName = SQLResult.getString("brandName");
                x_productName = SQLResult.getString("productName");
                x_productInformation = SQLResult.getString("productInformation");
                x_productImage = SQLResult.getString("productImage");
                thanks

May I assume since you're using ASP that you're on Windows? The only way I'm aware to be able to display Arabic characters on Windows would be to set your Windows language to Arabic. This will be somewhere in the Control Panel, but without knowing what version of Windows you're on, it's hard to be more specific.
In general, SQL*Plus is not a wonderful tool for viewing non-English data.

  • Unicode Characters not displaying properly after updating to 13.0.1+

    Previously, I had installed the Symbola font because certain symbols were not displaying properly in Firefox (notably on Twitter). Installing the font solved the problem for the most part (the four bit hex characters still didn't show up, but the six bit ones did).
    After updating to 13.0.1 the other day, the six bit hex codes do not show the correct symbol anymore with Symbola still installed. I even deleted Symbola from my fonts, redownloaded it (a newer version, no less), installed it, and opened Firefox, and it did not solve the issue. Like the 50 million other things that Firefox broke with the update to 13. -_-
    EDIT: This issue has since persisted with 14.0.1.

    Try to install the DejaVu font.

  • French special characters not displayed properly in discoverer 11g

    Gurus
    We are upgrading to discoverer 11.1.1.3
    I have found that French special characters (letters with accents) are not displayed properly in the discoverer tool menu.
    Example
    Sélectionner is displayed as S?lectionner.
    This doesn't seem to be a server issue as one of the tester (in U.S) is able to see the french characters displayed and ironically it is not the case in France itself where this is required.
    Please help
    Regards
    Ariv

    Pl post details of the two clients being used in this scenario - the exact OS version, browser version, browser language settings, Java version etc
    Since the accented character shows on one client , the issue is with the client or the settings on the client where the accented character is not showing correctly.

  • Chinese Characters not displaying properly

    I pasted Chinese text into a Rolling title but not all of the characters display.  Some (not many) of them display as an x inside of a square.  All I can think is that some of the characters are not being recognized. If it matters, the text is simplified Chinese copied from a website, pasted into Notepad, then copied again and pasted into the title.
    Help is greatly appreciated.

    John,
    I see that now, but the font I selected (simsun) seems to have resolved my issue. I believe it is a bug if I can display the characters correctly on other app, especially Microsoft.  On Microsoft apps, I can select many standard fonts and the Chinese Characters display correctly.
    Thank you for the link to submit a bug report. When I get time I will submit it, and hopefully they will correct the issue. 
    God Bless,
    Mark

  • Chinese Characters Not Displayed Properly when iCal sync with Palm T5

    Hi All,
    I am having problem with the Chinese Character display on iCal. I am using iMac Intel Core Duo and Palm T5. I can read on my iMac the Chinese Characters which I typed on the iMac. Also I can read on my Palm those Chinese I inputted on my Palm. But both can't display the Chinese Characters inputed by each other. Can anyone help?
    Thanks.

    Hello,
    I assume your flash disk is using FAT16/32...
    You need to specify the character set when mounting it. On the command line...
    # mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mountpoint -o iocharset=utf8
    To include this option in the default VFAT mount options under GNOME, launch gconf-editor, look for the key: /system/storage/default_options/vfat and add iocharset=utf8 to the list of mount options.

  • Arabic characters not displayed properly in the preview mode

    Hi,
    I am preparing a tool in arabic and all arabic characters seem to be displayed correctly in the design mode, but become illegible in the preview mode or when exported in flash (swf). Help much appreciated.
    Gregor

    Hi Gregor
    I think you're out of luck. There is no Arabic language pack for Xcelsius.
    When you're in design mode, you're using the Windows OS features, but when you try to preview or export then Xcelsius begins the process of converting the xlf to a swf. And since there is no lang pack it doesn't know what to do with the Arabic characters.

  • Why are Unicode Characters not displaying properly anymore ?

    Hi,
    I've just update my firefox Mac version 19.0 to 20.0. The big problem is I cannot see our Burmese Unicode character anymore.
    I can see burmese character at ( www.facebook.com/futurewayeducation ) with 19.0 without doing any setting but with 20.0, I am hopeless now. The page is writing with a font call Zawgyi-One. The font location is ( http://code.google.com/p/zawgyi/wiki/MyanmarFontDownload ). Now I have just one solution left which is removing this 20.0 version and use 19.0 or Switch Browser.
    Thanks.

  • OLE Objects are not displayed properly-overlap characters and empty page

    I'm using CR4E 12 Runtime libraries to load and view reports that are created in CR designer  v10. Some of the OLE Objects (not all) are not displayed properly.
    1) A full page contains terms and conditions as ole object is not at all displayed and just shown as black image.
    2) Some data in a table (OLE Object) shown as overlapped characters.
    Any body know the reason and is there any workaround to solve this issue?
    Thankyou very much for your time.

    Your problem seems to be with the character encoding you are using for your text.  A quick google search for ColdFusion character encoding should turn up the answer.  In case you are interested in learning more:

  • Lately pdf files from the Web do not display properly; what is wrong and how can I fix it so I don't have to use IE?

    I am a professor and frequently need to open pdfs of academic journal articles from electronic databases. Within the last two or three weeks, when I try to do this using Firefox, only the first page of the pdf displays and the rest are blank. In addition, a bar appears across the top with the message "This pdf file may not display properly." So I have had to switch to Internet Explorer to open the files and do my research. What is going on and how can I fix it so I can open pdf files from the Web in Firefox and have them display properly?

    My question is simple - why would you put an application in production that has a lot of bugs? To replace a good and steady Adobe product? My customers will believe that I put a pathetic fallible form online. They are not sophisticated on computers so I just tell them to use IE. Ugh
    I must agree with pgwebgirl!
