See subject, note that this question only applies to the .NET compact framework. This happens on the emulators that ship with Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK as well as on my English HTC Touch Pro (all .NET CF 3.5). iso-8859-1 stands for Western European (ISO), which is probably the most important encoding besides us-ascii (at least when one goes by the number of usenet posts).
I'm having a hard time to understand why this encoding is not supported, while the following ones are supported (again on both the emulators & my HTC):
So, is support for say Greek more important than support for German, French and Spanish? Can anyone shed some light on this?
I would try to use "windows-1252" as encoding string. According to Wikipedia, Windows-1252 is a superset of ISO-8859-1.
