I had problems before with special characters. That’s because I use UTF-8 as input method, but for some strange reason, wordpress used latin1 as encoding in the MySQL database. So far, I had been able to work around it. But when the Chinese in the last post broke, I finally decided to solve this problem. I went and converted the tables from latin1 to UTF-8.
Everything seems to have gone fine. If you come across weird broken characters or strange behavior, please drop me a line and I’ll look into it.
