I need to vent

Grr, f***, sh**, a** f***! I am setting up one of my PHP CMS's and was having trouble with non-ASCII characters. After pulling my hair out and endless googling I found the problem, htmlentities(). It turns out that htmlentities() is set to ISO-8859-1 by default and needs a specific parameter to be UTF-8.

I found this:

 * Encodes HTML safely for UTF-8. Use instead of htmlentities.
 * @param string $var
 * @return string
function html_encode($var)
 return htmlentities($var, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8') ;
