I’ve been using wordpress with UTF-8 from day one, but it keeps on converting my non US-ASCII characters to character entities. It’s frustrating, because first of all, it’s not needed, not in UTF-8 nor with many characters in other charsets, and second of all, because instead of taking up maybe one or two bytes, it takes up many more. A waste of bandwidth, in other words. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ll give you an example. Even normal characters like apostrophes get converted:
“I’ll be home by midnight” becomes “I& #8217;ll be home by midnight”
when you view it in a browser. So my question is, how do I turn this behavior off? It really annoys me, and I’m not that good in PHP, so could anyone help me please?
