  • [Forum] Error regarding form submission and UTF-8

    A user received the following error in what he calls a "subwindow" that appeared below our forum.

    A form was submitted in the windows-1252 encoding which cannot encode all Unicode characters, so user input may get corrupted. To avoid this problem, the page should be changed so that the form is submitted in the UTF-8 encoding either by changing the encoding of the page itself to UTF-8 or by specifying accept-charset=utf-8 on the form element. newthread.php

    Any info on this? Is there something to change to UTF-8 or a patch to convert to it? Is it a non-issue?
    No idea where to start on this one.
