i am reading a text from the net and like to have it right encoded
(german umlaute)

                        conn = new URL(mediaUrl).openConnection();
                        InputStream is = conn.getInputStream();
                        ByteArrayBuffer baf = new ByteArrayBuffer(50);
                        InputStreamReader isr = new 

                        int current = 0;
                        while ((current = isr.read()) != -1)
                                baf.append((byte) current);
                        Log.i(TAG, " *------ Load Data done -----*: ");

                        /* Convert the Bytes read to a String. */
                        html = new String(baf.toByteArray());

but still in my final "html" its not encoded and the german umlaute
are wrong.

Who can i read a stream and get it right encoded?

Check these classes:
URLEncoder:  http://developer.android.com/reference/java/net/URLEncoder.html 
URLDecoder:  http://developer.android.com/reference/java/net/URLDecoder.html 

I hope that is what you need.

 Hi Albert,

thanks for your Effort, you already answered in my other post.
But URLEncoder, looks to encode the URL itself, not the Content.

Now I have this Solution for all other Beginners:

For example after I read my Content with:
while ((current = is.read()) != -1) { baf.append((byte) current);}

//just encode like bellow into a string.
html = EncodingUtils.getString(baf.toByteArray(), "UTF-8");

or any other Code you need like:
html = EncodingUtils.getString(baf.toByteArray(), "ISO-8859-1");
or //html = EncodingUtils.getString(baf.toByteArray(),

import org.apache.http.util.EncodingUtils;

I hope that helps

I tried also to modify the Java Preferences SE 6 32-bits first ...
