Yes, windows XP, I believe. PHP Pill is a FileMaker plugin that
allows you to execute PHP from within your FM code. What I don't
understand is that the PHP regex should be removing ALL items not in
my regex list... it does so in FM on the Mac but not on the PC. But
the plugin is working as it is removing everthing... but gets tripped
on the trade mark symbol. I sent a side by side screen shot of the
fields on the mac and pc to your personal address.

I inquired about the problem below on a FM board but no one could
help. Hoping someone here may have an explanation or a workaround.
I have PHP Pill installed on both a Mac and PC versions of FileMaker
11. On the Mac, things behave as expected. On the PC, they do not. My
code is below:
$old_string= 'Antique Houses™ Appointment Calendar';
$find = '/[^a-z0-9]/i';
$replace = '';
$new_string = preg_replace($find, $replace, $old_string);
$new_string = trim($new_string, "");
So on the Mac, the above returns:
vs. the PC returns:
Is there any reason the PC version of FM converts the TM symbol to
instead of removing as it should via regex?
It sounds like somewhere along the line the character format isn't
being observed. I'm not sure what PHP Pill is, and a quick Google
for it brought up some odd results which didn't look like software!
What happens when you output the string length on each system? I'm
assuming you're using Windows on the PC, and not Linux, as that is
where I've seen most issues with character encoding in the past.
