I'm trying to display some Chinese data on a html page. The data is stored as CLOB in the Oracle database. This piece of code works fine for English data, but for Chinese data it displays upside down question marks. I'm sure it is an encoding issue, but I don't know how to resolve it. Can anybody help me please.
===================================================== stem clob; begin select v.xtext.getClobVal() into stem from item_text v where item_identifier = 31784;
htp.print('<html>'); htp.print('<head>'); htp.print('<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"></meta>'); htp.print('<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="zh">'); htp.print('</head>'); htp.print('<body>'); htp.print('you have reached the chinese page !!'); htp.print(stem); htp.print('</body></html>'); end; ===================================
Also when I run the below statement in iSQLPLus, I'm able to get the correct Chinese data.
select v.xtext from item_text v where item_identifier = 31784;
