Hebrew characters being changed to question marks

Reported by: illuminea Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.2

I updgraded a few sites to WordPress 2.2. At that point, any time I tried to enter a post or page in Hebrew, upon pressing Save or Publish the Hebrew characters became question marks (?). I tested this out on a few different servers, with the same results. I tested it with different themes, and turning all plugins off. Same results. I tested it on different computers - same results. I tried changing the encoding, changing the meta information in the header - same results.

I then went to two different sites that I manage that run on 2.0.5 and 2.1.2 respectively. On those sites, the Hebrew came out fine.

It is possible that this problem may extend to other languages with non-alphabetic letters.

We've received no feedback and the interface has changed significantly since you first reported the problem. As you're not the only use of WordPress in Hebrew (see http://wph.co.il/) I'll presume that the problem did exist but is now fixed.

I'm going to close this ticket but if you do get the chance we'd appreciate you testing the latest version of WordPress and let us know your findings here. If you do have problems, please give us instructions on how to reproduce them.
