To enable localization of our new platform, we thought that saving all character strings as UNICODE would be a good idea. Even if the front-end (PHP) doesn't fully support UNICODE yet, we figured it's still good to have the database in that format, for the future. We have not installed mb_string.

We have created a UNICODE database and started experimenting with it (PostgreSQL)
./configure --enable-multibyte
createdb -E UNICODE me-e

My question is: do you need to convert strings to UTF-8 before adding them to the database, or is that done "automatically"?

Best regards,
Per Aronsson
