    Does MySQL support Unicode???

    Lets do an experiment. These forums run on MySQL don't they??

    Now, I am going to write something using Greek letters. Normally you should view the letters by setting IE to the appropriate Unicode (Greek), from View/Encoding/more menu.

    Now I am writting normally in Greek, the following statement:

    Γαμώ την πουτάνα μου, δεν λειτουργεί το ριμάδι.

    - OK. Good until now. I can view the letters clearly, as I write them in IE. So lets click on "Submit", to see what it happens. Will finally greek letters work? Or No???

    Lets see.

    AND YES IT WORKS.

    Unlike older MySQL versions, the version of MySQL on this particular server works. This means that newer MySQL versions support unicode.

    THIS IS CERTAINLY POSITIVE!!!!

    I think this thread should be moved to the lounge.

    Yes he does. But for this forum you need to set IE to the respective language. (found in View menu).

    But you can state in web page's HTML, which unicode is the default for a particular page. This page is not set to any particular Unicode so u need to set IE manually to Greek in order to view what I wrote above!!!
