If you change to latin1 in global.php and in MySQL You run with ISO encoding.
Thats a big way around instead of re-encode formulaire's language files.
If you run the installation with UTF and uses Formulaire with english language, You don't have any problems?
How about the compatibility for people who upgrade? The data in my database is not necessarily UTF-8, is it?
But the 4 language files in ../install/language/yourlanguage has to be encoded in UTF-8
And the I ask, what sense is there in having lang files in utf-8. I would need to buy an special editor just to make small changes in language files. Utf-8 sucks big for me. Why can I just use my old and pretty simple notepad? This will soon become the faq most readed.
Are you talking about Windows Notepad? Because there you can select the encoding when doing file - save as. It has ANSI, UTF-8, Unicode little and big endian.
Yes, but, if you have a utf-8 file and you edit in notepad, it will show weird characteres, it will not converte them. You can not use notepad to convert utf-8 to Iso. Well, I have not figured how to do it yet. :(
