so for example this will turn 1251 into utf-8.
$utf8 = iconv('windows-1251', 'utf-8', $ansi);
But how to turn unknown (when it comes to us we do not know yet what format it is) ( in general any ) format (possibly known by Iconv ) to utf-8? (code sample)
You cannot translate from an unknown character set, the best you can do is make a guess about the actual charset and use that guess as first parameter – you can use
mb_detect_encoding() for that purpose.
I have written an array with the values of the string. You just need to do this:
$string = str_replace("Ã¢â‚¬Å“","",$string); $string = str_replace("Ã¢â‚¬Â","",$string);
And they are gone!
