Hi,

How to display Chinese Chars correctly using mailto: in Outlook 2003?

Same code:

I tried setting the IE codepage to uft-8 or gb2312, see below htm page
in IE6:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=gb2312" />

And set my outlook 2003's outlook Mail Format->Interational Options-
Encoding Options->Preferred encoding for outgoing messages to
Unicode(UTF-8) or Chinese Simplified(GB2312), and checked Auto select
encoding for outgoing messages.

When I click the Send mail button, it opens my outlook but display
garbage chars: µ÷²é

When I using view code in mail body, here they are:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=gb2312">
<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2900.6003" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>
<BODY><!-- Converted from text/rtf format -->
<P><FONT face=Arial size=2>&Acirc;&micro;&Atilde;
¡¤&Acirc;&sup2;&Atilde;&copy;</FONT> </P></BODY></HTML>

I've searched mailto: thru internet and looks like outlook 2003 and
IE6 not support UTF-8 display very well, and the following link
mentioned using outlook 2007 and IE7 will fix such issue, so is there
any solution/walkaround to resolve my issue in outlook 2003 / IE6?

Many thanks,
