I am having trouble recording £ signs to mySQL with PHP. What is the best method??
I have tried have my mySQL field as TEXT or VARCHAR but noting works correctly.
The field is going to have a comment in (which could be long) which may include any character from the keyboard (eg: !@£$%^&*(*)_+ etc.....)

Currently I am getting: ¿ or  signs!

Could someone help.
