RE: openldap 2.0.18 + chinese characters (Big5 or GB)

Thanks for the help,

But how can I put those UTF-8 Characters in a LDIF text file or by other means? The converted UTF-8 code is somewhat like control code that I can't simply copy and paste to the LDIF file using a text editor.

Unless you define a syntaxes which allows such encodings, no.
Values of directoryString syntax in LDAPv3 are restricted to
ISO 10646-1 characters encoded using UTF-8.

Language tags indicate language not character set.  lang-cn
would be more appropriate.

Use UTF-8.
