Okay, I'm currently trying to move my blog from Nucleus to WordPress, and have successfully imported everything into WordPress. However, since my Nucleus blog is in Swedish and ISO-8859-1, all exotic accented characters were jumbled.
Now, I tried using Tacker's script, but it seems it won't work because I've got other tables, not related to WordPress, in the same database. The script chokes on some fatal error on line 72 (but also displays the name of the first table in the database in the browser window).
So I tried using Ufferba's method instead. It worked fine backing up, took me some time to find Cyclone, a text converter for Mac OS X. Converted (set the options to Standard: ISO > Unicode; Encoding: ISO-8859-1 > Unicode 4.0; Variant: Standard > UTF-8). And then I had to manually restore the tables one by one, since my web host is set to time out. But it worked, eventually -- except that the accented characters still won't display properly.
And now, it doesn't help to switch the web browser's encoding to ISO-8859-1 to get the correct characters (it just messes them up differently).
Well, any suggestions? What am I doing wrong?
