What characters can I use in EmediateAd?

In most cases EmediateAd will allow you to use any type of character. But in some certain features, EmediateAd will in only allow a specific range of characters: These features are:

In these features the valid characters are:

&*-./0123456789:ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
¢µÀÁÂÃÄÅÆÇÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÐÑÒÓÔÕÖ×ØÙÚÛÜÝÞßàáâãäåæçèéêëìíîïðñòóôõöøùúûüýþÿ

Special characters - everything after z - behave differently depending on the site setup. EmediateAd expects all characters to be latin-1 encoded. If the site instead uses UTF-8, you need to add a special parameter to the ad call:

http://eas0.emediate.se/eas?encoding=utf-8;cu=0000;cre=mu;js=y;target=_blank;cat1=CatÅÄÖ

To make sure that special characters are always sent the way you expect them, the preferred solution is to percent encode them. Again, this can be done both using the latin-1 method, and the UTF-8 method. If UTF-8 is used, the parameter encoding=utf-8 must be added to the ad call.

The characters & and / must always be percent encoded if used inside a category shortname, searchword, keyword or name-value pair.

Example

Character Latin 1 utf-8
å %E5 %C3%A5
ä %E4 %C3%A4
ö %F6 %C3%B6
æ %E6 %C3%A6
ø %F8 %C3%B8
