_IEDocReadHTML fails with Cyrillic

Recommended Posts


I use _IEDocReadHTML to get content of a Cyrillic webpage (cp1251). The function works fine on my PC where I have Regional Settings configured to read cyrillic properly. However, if I try this scripts on another PC with 'Western' Regional Settings, all my Cyrillic characters are replaced with question marks!

Is there a way to have _IEDocReadHTML recognize non-Latin characters (no fancy unicode, just plain 1 byte characters, with ASCII codes in 128-255 range) without changing system settings?

IE displays this page fine in both cases.

Thank you in advance.

If it is not possible, then what else can I do to save a webpage (html only) to a file?
