    Saving foreign Characters in the DB Link to this post

    Hello.

    A user of a site a recently built entered an address with an á in it (a with grave accent) and the database cut off all data from this character onwards. Is that right?

    I am not a database expert and so wondered if someone could let me know if this should this work ok. The field is a Varchar(255) and the database is utf8_general_ci

    Any help would be greatly received.

    Many thanks

    Marc
