i'm trying to open a local html file, using this code:
B4X:
        Dim fn, fnu As String
    fn =  dirname & "w_" & acet1.Text.Replace(" ","_") & DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now) & "/" &  "report_for_browser.html"
    fnu = File.GetUri(File.DirApp, fn)
    fx.ShowExternalDocument(fnu)
if acet1.text is in english , the browser will open normally.
but if acet1.text is in arabic , the browser will not even open.



locale of the device is english UK

i also used this code :

B4X:
        Dim fn, fnu , ur As String
        Dim su As StringUtils
            ur = su.EncodeUrl(acet1.Text.Replace(" ","_") , "UTF8")
    fn =  dirname & "w_" & ur & DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now) & "/" &  "report_for_browser.html"
    fnu = File.GetUri(File.DirApp, fn)

    fx.ShowExternalDocument(fnu)
so how to let it encode the arabic text to browse the file
