Thanks Jan, it's much clearer now. My knowledge about character
encodings has multiplied 100-fold in the last 24 hours' research.
Would it be a good idea for the PHP Manual to address some of these
issues, by explaining good practice in encoding arbitrary user input in
forms (for example), for the benefit of those, like me, for whom
character sets are a bit of a black art?
Also I still cannot persuade get_html_translation_table to list those
non-Latin1 entities. This is not an important issue, since it appears
to be only an information function, but it would be nice if it were
consistent with htmlentities and html_entity_decode.
This probably one of the reasons some of us think that getting a stable
PHP6 based on unicode out of the door would probably be a lot more use
to people than PHP5.3 ;)
Eliminate character sets and the black art goes away?
