Strange characters (character encoding?) (3 posts)

    For my website, I created my own search-engine (because it's not totally word-pressed, there is also some own made stuff).

    Now, when I query the wp database, words with special characters (like è é ë ê etcetera) look very strange:
    for example:
    in stead of:

    I gues this had something to do with character encoding or something. I don't know much about that, and I can't find out why the articles displayed in wordpress doesn't contain the strange characters.

    Anyone has a idea how I can fix this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    My guess is you are displaying your search results on a page that has a different encoding than the default WP encoding (which is utf-8).
