I have some trouble with the charset of image captions, namely the non ASCII 7 bits characters are replaced with ‘?’, or even the text stops rendering. (That's what is in the database anyway, but not in the (UTF8) EXIF of my pictures.)
I chose UTF8 images URIs, unicode charset, and UTF8 IPTC in ZP's options, and it connects to the mySQL database in unicode only (client, connection, database, results, server, system). Also the non-latin file names are printed properly, hence I suspect IPTC's reader.
If I edit the database manually and replace the wrong text with something that contains non ASCII 7 bits character everything goes well, but of course I loose my changes when I press "Refresh Metatada"
Am I missing something?
(I use ZP version 1.4.2-RC2)
