    Greetings

    I have a program running on a solaris system
    that reads xml in utf-8 from files - it parses
    and validates blah blah blah

    These files come from various systems some of
    which are mainframe, as400, unix, peecee, and others

    The question is whether or not it is possible
    to loose the utf-8 encoded chars ( being replaced
    with the local char set ) via ftp?

    I hope this is the correct group

    It shouldn't happen as long as you use binary transfer mode.
