Hey guys,

I currently making a form and it's all going well and stuff. But when I input chinese information into the form, and save it to the mySQL database, it displays as gibberish in the phpmyadmin table viewer. And even if I try to retrieve the information from the database, it still is displayed as gibberish.

How can I fix this problem?
I'm learning PHP and mySQL. Please forgive my ignorance :(

Assuming your MySQL encoding is fine, you need ot make sure that whatever tool you're using to input the actual data and display it back (e.g. the browser) are set up correctly as well.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
