I am using OpenLdap with icelandic characters (é ó ú á í ð æ)and I have not
encountered any problems.
I have mostly been using PHP to add entries to my directory and I have just
encoded the values
from the webpages like this before I write them to the directory:
$cn = utf8_encode($cn);
$street = utf8_encode($street);
And before I display them I convert them back to ISO-8859-1 with:
$cn = utf8_decode($info[$i]["cn"]);
Other languages have similar commands to encode strings to utf-8
The LDAP browser I am using (http://www.iit.edu/~gawojar/ldap/) is also
supporting UTF-8 and
displays the entries correctly.
