Recommended reading for language-related problems

If you've run into problems that can be related to the charset setting on your site, for example when diacritics or other special characters aren't being picked up as expected, this info would be a good starting point.

Other things to check is that your charset-sensitive files (primarily index.php) are saved in the same charset as your database uses. In the case of UTF-8, you should take care to save the document as UTF-8 without BOM (Byte Order Marking), as the BOM differs between OS's. If you don't know what BOM is or does, Google it. ;)
