[SOLVED] japanese text

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to input japanese text into a mysql database.
I use Phpmyadmin to copy paste japanese text in the database.
I copy into a TEXT field. No matter what charset I try to use the text comes back as gibberish.

In another table I have text fields with mixed english and japanese text.
this text field is filled by a php script that writes the php string into the database.
with this text field I do not have the problem.

Does anybody know how to input japanese text directly into the db ?

I am getting more confused by the minute here.

thank you
anatak

It's all a matter of whether or not the input terminal supports non-ASCII characters, how how PHPMyAdmin deals with the TEXT field. Obviously, a script suffers from none of these problems.
