2 possible solutions:
1 - use latest versions (4.1) of mysql and UTF-8 encoding.

I am using 4.0.18 and the data look korrekt when retriefed out of the database.
I did not enable any kind of encodeing. Is there a downfall in how I am doing it, which I just now do not notice?



2(bad) - before storing encode all string to base64 or something like this :-)

Hi there,

I am wondering how to store special characters like the german  for example
into a mysql db. Should the characters somehow be transforemd into html entities
like &ouml;? What are the benefits if it works without them as well?

Thank you for any hint,
