Two upgrades - character problems [Solved] I upgrade to 7.1 and then again to 7.5. Now I have spurious 'Ã‚' characters in all sorts of php/MySQL applications. I am almost certain it is a character set issue (UTF-8?) but cannot figure out what to do. Any ideas? For example, I am running Mambo and I look at the MySQL contents using phpMyAdmin and the field looks ok but in Mambo it appears with this character tagged on. However, the same is true for custom applications. A real pain in the neck.
