hi i have a oscommerce 2.2 release on a FC3 distro with php 4.3.10 and
mysql 4.1. My problem is with the encoding. I use UTF-8 encoding (greek)
in Firefox browser as with my database and all its tables and columns.
Also my pages have the ...charset=UTF-8"> tag.
When i am inserting a row with the administration panel of oscommerce
this happens.
Value added first place: ÎÎÎÎÎÎÏ ÎÎÎÎÎÏÎÎÏ
value shown in db: ÃÂÃÂÃ?ÃÂÃâÃÂÃâ ÃâÃÂÃâÃÅÃÂÃÂÃ
Value shown in the oscommerce after retrieved from db: ÎÎÎÎÎÎÏ 
ÎÎÎÎÎÏÎÎï
(you have to use utf8 encoding in your browser to see the value exactly
i think)
Next if i go through php_Admin and set the value this is what i get.
Value added first place: ÎÎÎÎÎÎÏ ÎÎÎÎÎÏÎÎÏ
value shown in db: ÎÎÎÎÎÏÎÎÏ ÎÎÎÎÎÎÏ
value shown in the oscommerce after retrieved from db:????????? ???????
I have read something about SET NAMES in a query for the php-mysql
client but i didn' t understood exactly.
I would be grateful if somebody could help me.

The following is mysql character set .
