Problem with Filezilla and UTF-8 encoded files

Hello,

I experience a strange problem with Filezilla.

I have some php files on a server that are UTF-8 encoded. When I upload and then download the files again to edit them, the files appear as ASCII encoded.

I tried to switch from ASCII to BINARY transfer and back and didn't work. Any ideas?

Thanks:)

Wonder if you have to make a specific setting on both the client and server.  See the discussion here.

Thanks Ray,

I think it's a server issue as well from what I have read so far.
