Hi people,

I was a Palm user until I bought nokia 770. Now I'm trying to import
contacts from my Palm device to GPE Contacts.

To achieve this, I synchronize my Palm with JPilot, then I select
Contacts, Export to VCard, and I get file will all my contacts in
VCard. The file looks encoded in UTF-8. For example, a contact that
should be:


is encoded as:


So far, everything is Ok. The problem is when importing the VCard to
GPE Contacs. If I import the file "as is", I get a "double utf-8"
encoding in the contacs, so Bañuelo becomes:


where ñ is the UTF-8 encoding for ñ

If I convert the VCard file to iso8859-1 before importing, after
importing I get:


So, maybe there is something wrong with the encoding in sqlite? Any
idea will be welcome!

Thanks very much.
