BUG: German Umlauts in DropDownList not working correctly

    Hello,

    When I'm trying to select an Item in a DropDownList WebControl with an
    Umlaut (like ö) in it, then the SelectedValue property is not working
    correctly, this Value is not posted back, instead the Value before is taken.

    Even if I change every Locale setting to German (for instance all parameters
    in Web.Config in the globalization area) there still is no change in this
    strange behavior.

    I suppose this to be a bug in the WebControl and I think Microsoft should
    fix it.

    Best regards
    Sven

    Are you really sure it's not just a character encoding issue? Do the
    page's encoding and the request encoding in the <globalization> node
    match?
