hi, i'm using UTF-8 in my database and when i insert unicode characters directly through database it's all fine. But when i'm inserting through an html form using php it sends some kind of other characters to the database
e.g : ආයුබෝවන්

how can i solve this...???

wait a minute! now how can this text turn in to the real unicode characters i was looking for.. ? how can i convert them into text in my code?

edit - e.g: &# 3462;&# 3514;&# 35 40;&# 3510;&# 349;&# 3520;&# 3505;&# 3530; (WITHOUT SPACES)
