having problem involving PHP forms submitting Japanese characters (first name)to a MySQL database.
we use personalization tags in the message and subject to show the subscribers name but the first part of it get garbled and show as ? (question mark).this is happening for only personalization tags only and other Japanese charater that are used are just fine .
the scripts itselfe are encoded with UTF-8 and use phpmailer function which is also encoded to send mail as with UTF-8 Please bid only if you are Japanese and or know about encoding -decoding issue for PHP scripts.
I will send the INFO after rewarded the coder.
