Umlaut - disappearing entries

Hi Stan,

i am still fighting my umlaut problem.

Entering in the input fields:
...
firstname=Jörg
lastname=Kälbli

the link lm.php?subscribe... shows ö as ö ä as ä etc.
so the html syntax is used. This will cut the word right at the umlaut

Testing with ö and ü works perfect, as does %C3%B6 or %C3%A4

Why and where does the replacement happen? How can I modify?

cheers, Stephan

oh, the files name.. it´s in all of them.

I found a solution for now. But will this bring up other issues?

I changed

if ( isset( $_REQUEST['firstname'] ) && !empty( $_REQUEST['firstname'] ) ) { $firstname_raw = $_REQUEST['firstname']; $firstname = htmlentities( $firstname_raw, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8' ); }

to

if ( isset( $_REQUEST['firstname'] ) && !empty( $_REQUEST['firstname'] ) ) { $firstname = $_REQUEST['firstname']; }

cheers, Stephan
