The SQLi point I raised is unrelated to the encoding issue. It's a common attack vector, people generally aren't aware of security issues when they start coding.

    Yes, shure - you are right, no question. But perhaps your answer wasn't as helpful as intended in this context?

    Best regards, Karl

    P.S.: But what the hell causes this encoding issue?

      "But perhaps your answer wasn't as helpful as intended in this context?"

      You mean my response which linked to a wikipedia article explaining in detail the problem, a link which shows how to resolve the issue in Perl/DBI and a cartoon illustrating the issue of blindly trusting user input? ev0lution seemed to understand the point I made.

        "You mean my response..."

        Yes. Now ev0lution knows how to avoid SQL injection but he still gets some weird output. His problem still persists.

        Best regards, Karl
