      thanks a lot!

      now, this works great for me on the server side:

      $var = utf8_decode(urldecode($_POST['varname']));

      lg t

      In ISO Latin-1 (8859-1), ä is encoded as E4
      In UTF-8, this same glyph is encoded as C3A4
      (you can check http://www.miakinen.net/vrac/charsets/ - sorry french
      webpage, but I think you'll undestand quickly what you'll see)

      In DevMo the encodeURIcomponent is said to always sends back the UTF-8
      encoding of the characters...
      <http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Reference:Global_Functions:encodeURIComponent >

      There's encodeURI thet seems to do the same job, and also encodes in UTF-8.

      So it seems you've got no way client side to URL-encode in a charset
      that you choose... You'll have to make your server side code correctly
      handle utf-8 encoded query strings...
