mysqli (and also mysql) extension uses the default character set for libmysql This can be package dependend: Several distros deliver utf8 as default, others latin1. To be on the safe side, you should call mysqli_set_charset($link, "utf8/latin1/whatever) to set the character set for each connection. /Georg -- Georg Richter, Development Manager - Connectors & Client Connectivity MySQL GmbH, Radlkoferstr. 2, D-81373 München, www.mysql.com Geschäftsführer: Hans von Bell, Kaj Arnö - HRB München 162140 -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
