in thread UTF8 driving me up the wall again!

When you see utf-8 string 'Fumigación Aérea' with iso-8859-1 encoding, you will see this

Fumigación Aérea
So, I guess if you change browser's encoding to UTF-8 manually, you will see what you want.

So, check PHPMyAdmin's configuration. You will see "misc" menu at right side of menus, there will be "variables" pull down entry. At that entry, You will see configuration key, value pairs. What is "character set ***" values?

I am sorry for my lack of knowledge how to set these values, I am not good at mysql.

    Thanks for the reply. The weird thing, is that FF *is* in utf-8 for the encoding... if I change to iso-8859-1 then it double encodes :/

    I'm just uploading a fresh copy of phpmyadmin to see if that helps

      No, I don't mean you are double encoding.

      When I see *this page*, my firefox says it is Windows-1252 encoding. It is in View menu -> Character Encoding -> Checked encoding in the list. IE has same kind of option

      So, what does your browser think it's encoding when you see your troubled phpmyadmin page? Doesn't she think it is iso-8859-1 even thought it is UTF-8?
