I use htmlentities to convert special characters.
if I write
echo htmlentities('ò'); what i get is ò
but if the character cames from a form <textarea name='myText'>ò</textarea>
echo htmlentities($_POST['myText']); returns Ã² // with get and request i have the same problem and obviously with any other special character
it's php 4.3.9 on apache 2.0
I hope that php installation is the right forum for this problem.
