Currently my tables in MySQL are set to latin1_swedish_ci
Is it “suicide” to use that?
My website is based in the US, and I don’t expect to go “International” anytime soon, but anything is possible?!
If I am concerned about limiting my website, should I switch to UTF-8 or whatever?!
Also, how could making a change from latin1-swedish_ci to utf-8 (or whatever) mess up my current SQL or PHP? (My code isn’t that involved, but might still break…)
what happened when you tested it?
Mudslides in Southern California
Maybe you could answer the first question since that drives all others…
Supporting UTF-8 sounds like a lot of work and a pain…
Anyone have any practical experience using it?
Which UTF should I choose?
In phpMyAdmin there are a million different flavors of UTF-8 ?! :-/
utf8_general_ci seems to work fine. That’s the one mine usually defaults to.
