Im having issues trying to get macronised characters to show on my live site (Ã„â‚¬, Ã„Â are displaying as ??). Any info I can find on the subject just says to make sure everything is set to Unicode, which it is.. So I'm not sure what the problem is...
I thought it might be the database, however have gone in and changed that to utf8-unicode and there is no change... Other accented characters show up fine - it is just these ones that are giving me big problems :'(
* The Content-Type as specified by your webserver
* The Content-Type as specified in the <form> element on the page of the CMS you wrote your Maori language in. See here for more info: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_form.asp
Thanks for the reply Russ, I have made sure that all of the tables in mySQL are set to UTF-8.
The CMS form where I am entering my info does not have a content type specified within the form element but the head of the page states UTF-8..
One thing I have noticed is that when I enter the characters into the CMS and click Save&Publish it is fine, but as soon as a page refresh or log out and back in again, they are showing as ??'s in the CMS as well.

Hmm, do you have a link so I can take a look? I might be able to replicate it..
Otheriwse, try re-posting your issue onto the "bugs (temp)" forum describing your problem again and paste a link to this thread. If no-one replies within a couple of days, I would open a new Trac bug ticket (open.silverstripe.com) as it sounds to me like something the developers need to check out. (Without my knowing of course your exact setup - which you'd of course need to post with your tiocket too :-)
