username with non-English characters
« on: October 05, 2006, 10:36:00 AM »
I encountered a problem that a username with non-English characters (Korean, in this case) is broken.
Not all, but a certain character always becomes broken.

Any idea?

(version 1.0.8, using utf-8 encoding)

Hmm... It's strange.
I can see the right characters in IE on Win XP, but broken ones in Safari on Mac OS X.

But, in either case, I can't log-in. SMF says "That username does not exist."

I changed the encoding from "utf-8" to "eur-kr", and everything works fine now.
But I'm still wondering why "utf-8" has the problem mentioned above.
