Charset problems passing foreign chars to PHP/MySQL from Mac

What about urlEncode(macToIso("Rhône")), or have you tried that already?

If that doesn't work, would it be possible for you to send htmlText to  
the server?

I guess your server doesn't expect unicode, or it would have to be  
encoded into something non-binary. So, perhaps UTF8 isn't a good idea  
after all.
