Diacritics not appearing on web site ....

Threaded View

I have an application that I have sold to a few institutions and one
installation in particular is giving me a real headache.  Its a PHP
application that draws data from either Oracle or MySQL - much of the
data contains characters with diacritics ( etc).  It has been
installed on a range of webservers and php versions and operating
systems yet this time the diacritics are being removed -- will
simply be displayed as a.

We have double checked the data in the database and it does contain
these characters -- somewhere between Unix, Apache and PHP these are
being converted and I do not understand where.  Its not my script - we
tested with a plain cut and paste script from php.net on MySQL and the
same thing.  I also made sure the characters where not in the
underlying html and they are not.

Help --

 If this is coming from Oracle, what's your NLS_LANG environment variable set
