    Whats the best encoding method when editing the HTML on 3rd party program (russian language)

    Asked by miika on February 16, 2011 at 02:16 AM

    I've been working with form that requires me to make one "quiz/form" in 5 different languages. One of those is russian. I was amazed when copy-paste worked with JotForm so easily. The first problem came when I started editing the HTML in 3rd party program to change button names into russian. Using UNICODE and russian alphabets broke down the whole form. Buttons had different names, but they didnt work. And the form was in one continuous piece. Then I tried UTF-8, and it works now! Which is great. Buttons work and the names are exactly what I wanted.

    In which encoding are the forms when they are hosted in JotForms own server? And what encoding do you prefer when working with "exotic" alphabets.
