Smart quotes, apostrophes, and other characters are showing up on my blog as "?". Earlier they were showing up correctly, but while tyring to solve another problem, I had to back up and then re-import my database. After the rebuild the quotes became gibberish.
Here's the thing I can't figure. If I go into phpMyAdmin and look directly at the database, all the information appears as it should. All the characters are correct. But the blog won't read them that way (even though a few hours ago it would.)
Can anyone explain what the problem could be and/or offer a solution?
