MovableType and UTF-8 (Again)

Hopefully I’ve now got UTF-8 support working, after upgrading DBI and DBD::mysql and adding mysql_enable_utf8=1 to the DSN in lib/MT/ObjectDriver/DBI/ However, we’ll see.

Just to make it obvious if it’s broken: åéîøü

Yep, it seems to work. I’ve been struggling with that for ages now, on and off, as it’s been a real pain having to enter ’ every time I want a nice looking apostrophe/close-single-quote. Of course, I’ll now have to adjust to actually typing the “ ’ ” character.
