Re: ldap V3 and european accent

So is an UTF synthax attribut exists as IA5 exists as caseExactIA5Match !?!

If not I will have to patch perlLdap - php and Java to encode
into UTF-8 ..... (I use octetString to avoid it) !

You should use UTF-8 encoding when storing text strings. With UTF-8 ascii
characters are unchanged while accented characters will be rewritten. If
they exist in iso-8859-1 they will be written as two bytes, either as
the accented character or as the composition of the base character and
the accent.
