WordPress is starting to really, really annoy me with its text encoding quirks. I’m not sure why, but I’ll post something that has foreign characters in it, and more or less on its own, the foreign text – whether it is umlauts or Cyrillic – gets garbled into weird characters. I’ve tried changing the text encoding setting in WordPress to UTF-8, which doesn’t seem to help. If I change the text encoding in Firefox to UTF-8, though, the garbled text is fixed, and I see what I actually wrote.
Does anyone know how to go about fixing this permanently? Telling people to use a certain browser and set their text encoding to a particular setting isn’t exactly a “fix” in my book.
