validation class and windows-1250 - El Forum - 08-02-2007

I am using windows-1250 but this may happen to other code pages too:

$rules['field'] = "trim|required|alpha_numeric|xss_clean";

If field contains native ASCII characters it is ok but if field contains windows-1250 specific charcters validation will be FALSE:

native ASCII: "some text with only alphanumeric chars" = this is ok
specific windows-1250: "some text with extended ASCII chars đđšžćčžđšđš" - this will result with validation FALSE

So, i have to use "trim|required|xss_clean" which is partialy functional for anything except english.

Or am i missing something? I am not sure how this happened because i was using same rules to insert data and all of the sudden it doesn't work....
