I moved my blog from MT to WP and have some issues. The character encoding for the database is latin1 (ISO-8859-1) and the blog is written in Portuguese, which uses accented characters (like “á” or “ê”).
I modified the character encoding in the blog settings (under settings/reading/encoding for pages and feeds) to “ISO-8859-1” and all the old posts appear fine. Any *new posts* that I create also appear fine.
Comments, though, are being displayed in utf8. If I look in the database, they seem to have been saved in the wrong character encoding (when I change the character encoding in the browser to utf8, the posts display wrong but the comments then display ok). If I edit a comment using the dashboard, the edited comment is saved correctly and displays fine afterwards.
How do I change the character encoding for the comments?
