Re: Not able to pass Japanese text as a parameter usin
If I change the stylesheet so that the default value of 'parameterName' corresponds to the Japanese string passed in and then run this via Visual Studio then everything works fine.
The code you showed seems like ATL or COM C++ code to me. That's been a while ;)
To get international characters correctly one should adhere to the rule of getting them correctly everywhere. The MSXML libraries you use give you the opportunity to set the character set before reading your streams. IIRC, Microsoft overrides the character set (better: character encoding) defined in the XML prologue, meaning it is best to set it yourself.
Same is true for the XSLT, which is XML. The XSLT must be loaded as UTF-8 (or similar) if it contains high characters. Since Microsoft's MSXML (and any other processor for that matter) loads the XSLT through an XML parser, this parser must load it with UTF-8. Check if that is correct.
Finally, when you have the source and the XSLT correct, the output settings must be correct. But that won't influence your processing, it only influences the way the output will be encoded. I.e., if the output is XML and you specify US-ASCII as encoding, then all high characters (meaning above 0x7F) will be escaped using numerical entity references.
Finally (2), if you write your output XML somewhere, using XML streaming, this receptive stream must also have the correct encoding set before it is used / attached to the processor.
It is been some time since I used MSXML from code, but I remember having some trouble getting encoding correct. To test your chain, create a minimalist XSLT template, an XML input stream, and an output stream and run it with high characters. When it works and all settings are as they should, then add your original stylesheet and source.
I believe it is also possible to tell the output stream to use whatever encoding the XSLT says it should use, but I believe I have never managed that the normal way (with "normal" I mean automatically). So make sure to explicitly set it until you find a better method.
