    Hello, I wonder if there is anyone participating into this forum. Anyway, is there anyone who can successfully query chinese words ( or any language other than english ) by this JZKit?

    The second question is, I can query by english, but my result contains chinese words, all those words become strange characters, is there any way to solve this? For example, something like new String ( title.getBytes("iso-8859-1"), "big5");?? I've tried using utf-8, but no success.
