From a form Japanese text for an ad is input into a flat database. Before it is added the content is displayed for confirmation.
Everything is right except that I have a problem with one specific character (input at $type), which is to be repeated in each ad at the beginning.
It can be input, the confirmation script displays it properly, and it is also correct in the flatfile. However, as soon as it is displayed in a table on a page where all ads are listed, that specific character gets garbled (disappears) and the rest of the word jumps to the next line. Other characters do not cause this problem.
I assume that the script takes part of the character code of this specific character as a part of the script for some reason. Is there a way to prevent this?
