Subject Attribute Table and Hungarian accent marks 
Author Seth Neuman 
Date Feb 17, 2009 
Message I am using ArcMap version 9.3 and am trying to enter street names in Hungarian. The following accents...ö,ü,ó,ú,é,á, and í are recognized by ArcMap and after saving an edit session and opening an attribute table that I have named "Streets", street names containing the above accents are saved correctly with the accent marks. However, when I save the names of the streets containing the Hungarian letter o (with a double accent mark...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_acute_accent) it does not recognize this letter and when saving an edit session it changes back to o (without the accent mark). Why does ArcMap not recognize this accent, but recognizes the others and is there any way to get ArcMap to recognize this accent? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Message I have a similar problem like this with polish accents.
When I edit the dbase-table with the polish accents they are typed correct but when I want to store and end the edit session all polish accents are not stored. Unicode signs will also not be stored in a dbase table.

Message Unicode characters can be stored in shapefiles, but this is not enabled by default.

See 'HowTo: Read and write Shapefile and dBASE file encoded in various code pages' at http://support.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=knowledgebase.techarticles.articleShow&d=21106

Unicode is fully supported in enterprise geodatabases (managed by ArcGIS Server) with ArcGIS 9.2 and above, somewhat supported with ArcGIS 9.1 and 9.0 (managed by ArcSDE) and not supported with ArcGIS 8.X.

See 'FAQ: Does ArcSDE support Unicode?' at http://support.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=knowledgebase.techarticles.articleShow&d=27341

If the characters are not displayed correctly, verify that the font is set to Unicode font, such as Tahoma.

For more information on Unicode, including explanations of the three main Unicode character encodings in use, see the online help topic 'An overview of Unicode' at http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisdesktop/9.3/index.cfm?TopicName=An_overview_of_Unicode

Message ...encoding to utf-8 with regedit, that's it.
Thanks a lot for the link(s), Ray.

Message Ray,

Changing to UTF-8 worked and I was able to use the Hungarian accents. Thanks for your help!
