Encoding issue (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I would like to go ahead and update my install but my current database seems to have characters encoding issues :
    - all my options (header, meta, RSS) are set to UTF8
    - the database tables and fields are latin1
    - as a result, the data stored in the DB look like this in phpmyadmin :

    je suis allàƒÂ© chez AmàƒÂ©lie

    instead of :

    je suis allé chez Amélie

    What would be the best way to set all the data in UTF8 ? I saw g3org3x's plugin but it only modifies the DB structure. I would like to do the data as well.

    Thanks

    I should prolly add that I'm running 2.3.3 at the moment. I started a few years ago with WP 1.2 - encoding was latin1 (ISO-8859-1) back then.
