Hi All,
       I have a question about sending chinese/japanese chars. Whenever I 
try to send chinese/japanese chars to a buddy, the server is disconnecting 
my client.

If my understanding is correct jabber supports(expects) UTF-8. If it expects 
UTF-8, in what form ? Should the XML be converted to UTF-8 and passed as a 
binary stream ? If yes, how this can be achieved ?

So to send non ascii chars like the chinese/japanese chars, I have to 
convert them to UTF-8 first and then send them to the server. Is this 

I have very little experience with internationalization. Any help and 
suggestions is highly appreciated. Thanks.
