I need to retrieve and store text in a foreign languages e.g. Thai.

Can I create the pages with Dreamweaver? Storing "Thai text" in mysql using PHP ... ?

This is new to me ..would appreciate if somebody can give me a hint or point me in the right direction.

Thanks a lot.

Hi, I would recommend using the charset of "utf-8". I recently had to do a mirror site in Hebrew. Lots of trouble for an English-based program (Hebrew reads right to left). Always check your browser for how everything is displayed...as Dreamweaver sometimes doesn't show you exactly how the characters are displayed in the browsers. Hope this is a start to helping you. Do a google search for "utf-8 dreamweaver and your language of choice" ... this should give you information that you need.
