Dear Peter,

Thank you very much for your answers. It rings a bell.

Do you mean that glyph hexaX will display differently in UTF-8 and EUC_JP? If 
it is really the case, we cannot use UTF-8.

Maybe we could use "getdatabaseencoding()" to determine the dabase encoding 
and generate HTML pages with the corresponding headers. Example: Latin1 
database <-> ISOS-8859-1 headers.

The problem is that PhpPgAdmin interface needs to be localized in several 
languages, not related to database encoding. Example: EUC_JP interface and 
Latin1 databases.

Maybe a solution would be to use the ISO 10646 notation for PhpPgAdmin 
interface localization:  "&#XH;", where H is a hexadecimal number.
