Unicode?

Postby farhan00 » 14 May 2008, 19:05

Can this forum use unicode characters?

For example, Arabic characters?

I don't think so, but let me look into it. (I tried posting some unicode and got a crash on MySQL)

There is some stuff I would like to paste that is partially in Arabic. I think it would benefit everyone here.
If we just can't...I'll just transliterate it (though that would suck)

You're right, that would suck.

My initial investigations show that whilst unicode isn't allowed, UTF-8 is, which should support Arabic characters. I'm still reading up on it, so will report back findings soon insha'Allah.

Any news on the Unicode info?
Is there a way to get it working on the forum?

Have spent several hours on this today, including an update of the entire system - still no joy, but I will keep at it.

My biggest problem is finding time in between an extremely hectic working life and family. (The former usually gets most of my time!).
