edit the database connection file to force it to use the UTF-8 character set.

In the database connection file add the following code on a new line just befoer the closing php tag "?>"

so change:

php:
?>




to:

php:
mysql_set_charset('utf8',$ConnectionName);

?>




where ConnectionName is the name of the connection.

You can update the code where it is inserted and use the htmlentities() function to encode the string where it is inserted into the database.
