Wrong encoding in description of uploaded files

When i upload an image and use umlauts like "äöü" or the sharp s "ß", the code that WP returns contains incorrently encoded characters. Tested with Firefox 1.0.3 and Safari 2.0 on a Mac.

I think this has more to do with your DB collation than anything else. WP should be able to display UTF-8 fine, but it might be stored in latin1-swedish-default (the default) in the database.

I'll try to reproduce this.

Accents (ú) and umlauts (ü) worked for me.
