strange problem: "é" becomes "Ã©" in mysql. No idea why...
i really have a strange problem. i have a form. when the form is submitted, the data is inserted in the db. the strange thing is that, in mysql, letters like é, à, è are translated into stuff like that: Ã© Ã Ã¨.
i really don't know why and i can't figure it out. i don't use htmlentities before the db or anything else. all i do is trim the incoming data and addslahes....
does anyone have the slightest idea of what's happening?
What kind of table row are you putting it in? Varchar? Text?
thanks for your reply, I already feel relieved
all the problematic fields are with VarChar
