I have an arabic website ... I have installed the database and when opened the website after I uploaded it I found the arabic characters like question marks: ???? ?????? ?? ????? ??? ??? ... that's how the data are shown.

other arabic characters written with html appear ... I use a meta tag for charset:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1256">

does that have anything to do with the database collation? I am using phpmyadmin, and I have this only arabic selection for language: arabic (ar-utf-8) and
the data in the database are displayed in arabic characters ... but when calling them with PHP, they don't appear on webpage. any solution? please help me...
