£ symbol getting entered as "Â£24.00"
I have a website where users enter a salary into a field and then it gets entered into the MySQL database. If I enter £75k it should get entered into the database as £75k. However, it's getting entered as Â£75k.
The doctype on the page is utf8
The database field is also utf-8
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
I have really run out of ideas what may be causing this. It must be something on the frontend, as i'm using the same code on other websites and all work fine.
job_salary varchar(200) utf8_general_ci Yes NULL
