Help with page encoding issue and weird characters

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I'm trying to write a screen scraper and when I pull out the lines of the html file that I'm interested in and put them in a variable, I end up with a few extra weird characters in my string that I wasn't expecting. And I'm having a hell of a time stripping those characters out. Its some type of encoding issue I think because the char shows up different in IE versus FF (which it shows up as a black diamond with a question mark in it). Anyone have any ideas ?
