Storing Foreign Characters ( chinese, arabic, etc )


Recommended Posts

I have a table setup in MySQL to contain different copy versions of this page. It's collation is "utf8_general_ci" and the type is "text". Will this be able to store Chinese Simplified/Traditional, Arabic, etc characters?


Not necessarily for Americans to view, but for their own country's viewing. So if I was in China, wrote on the Chinese keyboard and stored it.. Then refreshed my screen, I'd be able to see it? or would the Collation mess it all up?


Thanks a ton!

And this is very very urgent. Sorry :(
