There are character set differences between the different platforms, when entered in an app by the user.  Characters slash "/" for example is one of these.

Has anyone detected the same problem?  What would be the intelligent solution to overcome this?  So when a user is typing "ä" (a with umlaut) from Android device soft keyboard, it will be displayed the same on his/her iPAD screen?  The amount of text typed is not large, 100 or so chars.

Unless there is a new trick since LC V7 (just transferring to V8), the only solution would be device-vise use conversionTable[key,os], and maintain it as differences appear.
