Re: Arabic text in mysql Varchar row

Where you see the diamonds, is actually square shapes....in my php echoed page....this submit form on this mysql forum prints the square shapes as symbols.

One thing though before I read this message I did the following:
I commented out:
$dbcon->query("SET NAMES utf8");
$dbcon->query("CHARACTER SET 'utf8'");

and now the db fields 'company' and 'title' show:
في الخط ف في الخط ف

and the text comes out correctly in the page....
though php is not the issue to look at now....but to explain...
I did an insert with utf8_encode and then display on the php page with utf8_decode.
for the 'title' and 'company' fields.

The funny thing is Arabic text now comes out correctly for those fields
but now the other fields like 'description' longtext utf8_general_ci utf8
come out funny but in the db shows: في الخط ف في الخط ف

as you mentioned it really looks like a corrupt table...

it is best I keep this simple now to get to the bottom of this....
as it stands the 'title' field is: varchar(255) collation utf8_unicode_ci and chracter set utf8.

for now select hex() shows:

| title | HEX(title) | LENGTH(title) | CHAR_LENGTH(title) |

Thanks, I will TRUNCATE TABLE and start over. Or DROP TABLE, CREATE TABLE again and I will see what I can get with the
SELECT HEX()...I will get back to this post with some information...
