NO CYRILLIC?!


Recommended Posts

Well, there are a few reasons why you can't do such a thing.

PHP/SQL/Your Web Browser support, basically, the entire Latin derived character set. Cyrillic, and Japanese, are NOT part of this character set. If you enter a character it does not support, it gets converted.

PHP/SQL/Your Web Browser are all localized. If you downloaded the English version (US or UK) it's going to pretty much support the English alphabet and some special characters. That's about it. Anything more and you're asking too much.

The problem really just lies in support for Encoding/Character sets.

Would anyone like to point to any usernames on the board with Asian characters in their names so I can try and explain how that's possible?
