Hello. I am experiencing some kind of charset problem.

I try to insert a string like "? ? ?" into a field of a table on a MS SQL Server 2000, and when I use its query analyzer to check it; the string "? ? ?" was inserted by that query. (using the function  mssql_query)

Although  I explicitely added the  iso-8859-1 support in the php.ini, and even in the apache's configuration file; it does not make any difference.

I have even tried functions like  rawurlencode, htmlentities, htmlspecialchars but none of them result into what I desire.

The weird part is; those same characters are displayed correctly when fetching them with a plain select statement.

The Windows 2000 Small Business Server is natively installed with Belgian locales; which supports these characters. 

I posted everything into detail on in php.i18n under subject "charset problem" but apparently nobody has a clue.
