Enabling UTF-8 Unicode language encoding in your page header.

UTF-8 allows for support of various languages, including Asian languages and their character depth. It is a widely supported and flexible character encoding, used for many European languages and can also represent Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

It's fairly simple to enable UTF-8 on your wiki pages. Currently PmWiki 2.0 versions have the UTF-8 file needed already loaded.

Here are the steps to enable UTF-8

  • Open your config.php file
  • Add this line:
  • save and upload your config.php file back to the server.

If you validate your site you should see that UTF-8 is default encoding.
