I am a web developer, kind a newbie, and I work with html, css, js, php, mysql technologies.
Often I run into a trouble with using special chars, and I’m pretty confused with this issue. I work in Serbia, Serbian language uses some special chars, and sometimes when data is entered (or populated in select menu from database) it contains some of these special characters such as čćžđš. The problem appears from time to time when some specific clients (I don’t know how specific) use this forms, for example- č becomes Ä and data is inserted that way in database. You can assume what mess this is making on my website.
I suppose there are a good technics to get over this, so I need some good hint, tip, pointer or advice about this in general.
Thanks for the time and answers
