Re^2: Writing UTF8 Filename
in thread Writing UTF8 Filename
Thank you all for your responses.
Juerd, I am wondering what you mean when you keep saying "encode explicitly":
The unicode strings I am trying to set as the filename are encoded as utf8 from a web form. They go into the utf8-character-set encoded mysql database. They display properly on the web form. What step for encoding explicitly could I be missing? It seems to me that they begin life as utf8 and they stay that way. How do I get more explicit?
