we're having a charset issue when displaying tikiwiki pages.
The pages themselves are correctly sent as UTF-8: data coming from the localization files is fine.
However, data coming from the tikiwiki database is latin1, and those characters are shown as ? in a lozenge.
The database is encoded as UTF-8, but the default encoding for MySQL, set at build-time, is Latin1. So it appears that there is an implicit conversion done when getting/putting data to and from the DB.
Data received is converted from UTF-8 to Latin1, and data sent is considered to be Latin1 (though it is UTF-8), and converted again: the end result in the database is corrupted again.
It seems that this happens because tikiwiki uses the default charset encoding from the MySQL engine. On another system, with the same MySQL version, but built to use UTF-8 as default (--with-charset=utf-8), there is no problem.
It should probably use the "SET NAMES utf8" command to set the charset encoding, as described there:

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http://
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
