Character Encoding
Hi,

I'm currently working on a CMS system for our LinksSQL installation but I am experiencing some issues with character encoding.

If you take a look at this page - http://www.bn23.com/channels/Lifestyle/telepathy---hello--is-anyone-home--.html - You should see lots of strange characters such as
all over the page.

I find this odd as the text appears absolutely fine in the database, it's only when I retrieve the text using LSQL's modules that I get the problem.

I've tried changing the character encoding of the page from iso-8859-1 to utf-8 but this simply removed the strange
(and some of the legitimate) characters when using FireFox while Internet Explorer just replaced the strange characters with a square.

Any ideas on where I'm going wrong?

Thanks,
Kev
