Hi all -
I'm building a market information system here in Niger using http-requests, php, mysql and some FrontlineSMS keyword love. In two of the natural languages of the system, there are special letters that need to be displayed. [Hausa: Ɓɓ, Ɗɗ, Ƙƙ, Ƴƴ and Zarma:Ɲɲ and Ŋ ŋ] .
I am able to place the html entities of the letters (eg. "Ɲ"="Ɲ") in the db, to recall the letter using my php file and to display the letters correctly, using "html_entity_decode($foobar, ENT_NOQUOTES, 'UTF-8');", in the source code of the php page. However, when the letters get passed back to FrontlineSMS, they are displayed in the ANSI format (Æ³ instead of Ɲ).
Am I missing something somewhere? Has anyone else run into this problem?
