And then my head exploded
Right,

so I was struggling with some character set issues today. Here's what I found:

  • a mysql server has a certain character set
  • a mysql database has a certain character set
  • a mysql database table has a certain character set
  • a connection between a client and the mysql server uses a certain character set
  • an html or php file is saved in a certain character set
  • an html or php file can declare it's contents to be written in a certain character set
  • a webserver can declare a served page to be served with a certain character set

All of the above can be the same, or, more likely, they can conflict. This can, and will, destroy your sanity and sap your will to live.
They fell, they screamed, they wept but they died
From hands of the abhorrer
