I have a need to be able to enter in the same DB field both US characters and French accentuated char as the content could be in FR or US English.
As is I tried to set my charset to utf-8
and DB field to utf-8 too
tried also before inserting utf8_encode($str) to no avail
here is the result for example I tried a 4 char words with accent on the 4th char
only the three first char are found in the field the last one is gone.
I thought it might be related to my CleanDb() safe insert function but that is not the case, so I have no idea.. any clue?
