An user reported in the forums that the data from his store (in Chinese, using UTF8 encoding) was not being properly handled by the OSCPMWin application.

The application has not been tested with UTF8 (or any non-Latin encoding).

Pending to replicate and fix.
This task depends upon

We have been testing. It seems we actually support local encodings, but not UTF8.

Pending to find the problem. I think the problem are our data structures and the visual controls. The visual controls will be changed to TNT controls, but we have no experience with the internal data structures, although Delphi provides several WideChar functions.

Changing this to Major, not Critical.

As we are moving to Lazarus, it seems to work OK with UTF8 data. However, the server-side script don't. We are testing.
