    Unhappy Encoding or Character Set Question

    A user copies text from Word which includes a (TM) Trademark symbol and pastes it into a text area box on our form. After pasting, the Trademark symbol appears to have pasted into the box okay. But when the form is saved, the trademark is replaced by a Y with an accent.

    I know this is an encoding or character set issue, but I don't know where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    What's the character set of your html page?

    Also, I suggest converting the trademark symbols to ™ somehow when you save the user's input.
