The function to convert chars (Normal and Greek) to the equivalent in ASCII number.

The function to convert chars (Normal and Greek) to the equivalent in ASCII number.

This is good for using in singlecatergory views when using JavaScript to build URL. This way you have no problem with the conversion.

Use this function in the first column of the view you use to select the singlecatergory and/or restricttocategory for Webapps.

Use this function to build you links and use the number as a singlecatergory reference instead of the character.

This way you eliminate any conversion problems with multi-language entries. (Like Greek chars.)
