Conversations Lately (possibly since OSNews v4.1?) I've noticed the following characters creap in: "�€�s"

At first I assumed it was Firefox on Slackware having a different charater set to the post in question, but it seems to do with my work desktop (IE7 on WinXP).

This is a known bug?

I think it has to do with the server's default encoding. I'll look into it.

It’s a problem with what charset you assume the field to be in, right?

The fields should be UTF-8, but for some reason, htmlspecialchars() is converting it.
