Issue with PHP html FORM SELECT OPTION and UTF-8


Recommended Posts

Hi all GURU's,



I have a problem with UTF-8 characters when I post values/data from my MySQL database into the OPTIONs that I use when using a SELECT in my FORM.


The PHP script files are in format UTF-8.

The database, the tables and the columns are all set in UTF-8.

The charset in the META-tag for the html output is set to UTF-8.


All other text that is fetched from the database shows my characters (Swedish å ä ö) the right and correct way, EXCEPT when I echo the data in the OPTIONs in my SELECT box.


What can I do?

Are you absolutely sure that the file which includes these select boxes, is saved and encoded with UTF-8? If they're stored properly into the database, this is the only thing that came to my mind.


If so, post the code in here and we'll check it out.
