    using the 3.8.8 version in a WP 3.7.1 instance in french causes the problem that the shipping address for an order is not correctly saved in the according field of the DB 's postmeta. The address is always chopped/ends where it has an accented character, which are quite current in french addresses. The function saving the order details to the db seems not to be capable to deal with accented characters or UTF8 ...

    any help will be appreciated

    Thanx for the response, but:
    "You must be logged into the forum as a customer to view the content of this page."

    .... nevertheless I found the place to change the encoding : you were right, it was not set to UTF8! How should one now this ? And why in the world is the paypal default set to windows crap when UTF8 is the industrial standard and the PP account is set to french? Paypal sucks!
