Hi,

I've got a remote db host that runs PG 8.4.x DBs in UNICODE german.
I connect with pgAdmin from Win-XP and everything is nice as long as I
look into tables or the nontranslated DDL stuff that pgAdmin creates.

The translated error messages e.g. in the logfile show weired
characters, though.
Obviously the PG server sends UTF-8 and the client doesn't understand.

The DBs are UNICODE so the client-encoding defaults to UNICODE, too.
pgAdmin uses Tahoma with Widows-1252 encoding but I can't find a switch
to set it to Unicode.


What to do ?

Andreas, what you are looking at is not an encoding, it's a font option.
Use some German font in there, the characters should be fine. The
PgAdminIII on MS-Windows is using the system encoding. Viel Gluck.
