The WebService published to Windows Server 2019 IIS cannot display traditional Chinese characters

Huifeng Li 1 Reputation point

We have a WebService published on Windows Server 2003 IIS and it works normally.
We recently published it on Windows Server 2019 IIS.
The characters in simplified Chinese are displayed normally, but some characters in traditional Chinese will be displayed as simplified characters and some characters will be displayed as garbled codes.
These text data are entered by users and saved to Oracle database.
When the WebService reads these text data, traditional Chinese will be displayed as garbled code.
