ANT build properties and escaping characters

Hi,

I have some characters that I need to escape in my build.properties file (like äåö). I tried using <loadproperties srcFile=""> with the <filterchain><escapeunicode/></filterchain> node but that didn't seem to help.

Any recommendations on this?

Cheers
Kris

Hi Kris and welcome to Javaranch, sorry I don't have any answers for you today, but have you tried the ANT mailing lists?
