There is a serious issue with WP 2.5 RC1 as far as I can tell. My update went perfectly well but all accentuated characters are showing scrambled. Check it here (written in French, hence the high frequency of such chars).
My first reflex was to blame MySQL, so I went to phpmyadmin and checked my encoding settings:
- MySQL charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)
- MySQL connection collation: utf8_unicode_ci
I then blamed my personal template, but the problem subsists with the Default WP template. Argh!
What should I change to get my proper character display?
