I hope this is the right place to be asking this question... I'm
relatively new to the world of Unicode and text encodings in general and
am having a little trouble working exactly how I should be collecting
information from web forms and how I should be entering this information
into my database.
I think there is one question that will shed some light on a lot of my
Which one of these looks like a proper UTF-8 character: é or Ã© ?
Basically, if I enter the character 'é' (egrave) into my database, when
trying to display it on a webpage, it displays as a '?'. If I try to enter
it as 'Ã©' It displays ok. So does this mean that the correct way to type
an 'é' is to actually type 'Ã©'?
many thanks in advance.
