    charset

    I'm building a website that is supposed to work in different countries all over the world.
    So, I need the letters to show up properly. Well, I guess it's not that easy for some asian or arabic types.
    But, let's say for Sweden and Germany and their special charset.

    What should I use? In Scandinavia letters like , , and are used.
    I just want the letters to be added into MySQL the right way and end up on the website with the correct letters.

    If people signup to my site with their name written in odd letters, the I want my page to show them correct on their screen.

    I'm not sure what to do, so can anyone tell me what I should use here?

    I'm working in Dreamweaver, so there a loooooong list of charsets.

    Go with utf8, it's the best choice for multi language websites. Don't forget to set database encoding to utf8 as well.
