I have a mySQL database that contains accented characters that are being displayed incorrectly by a HTML page.
The problem is that I do not trust the encoding that the database is reporting for the tables, because the whole thing was migrated from another server that was failing.
I have tried to convert the characters to several encodings but my problem is identifying the source character encoding.
I have copied a segment of text from the database.
This is the phrase as it should have been displayed
Fóton é uma ferramenta multi-camadas, multi-nível para criar emissores do tipo CAEmitterLayer e partículas...
This is how it is being displayed
FÃŗton ÃŠ uma ferramenta multi-camadas, multi-nÃvel para criar emissores do tipo CAEmitterLayer e partÃculas...
As I see, this is happening:
- ó is being displayed as Ãŗ
- ú is being displayed as Ãē
- â is being displayed as Ãĸ
- é is being displayed as ÃŠ
- á is being displayed as ÃĄ
Is it possible to identify the encoding by looking at the text?
