QuickBase and Unicode Support

Some quick notes on QuickBase and Unicode:

  • QuickBase stores Unicode data natively on the backend
  • Unicode encoding must be set as default in the browser
  • Any QuickBase functionality that relies on Javascript or AJAX support, DOES NOT work with Unicode

The last point is due to the two issues:

1. The bug with UTF-8 encoding in my previous post.

2. The fact the UTF-8 is not decoded properly as described here.

Same applies to the QuickBase Javascript client library. Of course, adding cross browser XML support and proper decoding would fix it.
