    Hi all.

    International Character set support is killing me.

    I'm using UIAlertview to grab a Name (any language)
    and the PHP is getting this the

    echo "$sql";
    Gives me:
    INSERT INTO HighScore_elements_global(userName, userID, score, country) VALUES ('õneDây', '00:01:06', '66', 'United States')'
    and if I paste this into a Sequal Pro Query and run it. It works fine.
    BUT in the MySQL I get back: õneDây

    I've pasted (non-english) text into the MySQL and it does return the correct characters. not sure where the string is getting messed up or something.

    I have set:
    header('content-type: application/json; charset=utf-8');
    $link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "myTable", "password", "myHighScorerGlobal");
    mysqli_set_charset($link, "utf8");

    using this to send:

                    NSMutableArray* sendAllJSONDICT = [[NSMutableArray alloc]init ];
                    NSDictionary *params = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:
                                            [NSNumber numberWithInt:userScore.gameTimeSeconds],@"score",
                    [sendAllJSONDICT addObject:params];
                    NSData *jsonData = [NSJSONSerialization dataWithJSONObject:sendAllJSONDICT options:NSJSONWritingPrettyPrinted error:nil];
                    NSString *jsonString = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:jsonData encoding: NSUTF8StringEncoding];               
                    NSDictionary *paramass =[NSDictionary dictionaryWithObject:jsonString forKey:@"jsonarr"];
                    uploadError = YES; // Set Error Flag  
                    [httpClient postPath:@"/recieveScore.php" parameters:paramass success:^(AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation, id responseObject) {
                        NSString *responseStr = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:responseObject encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
                        NSLog(@"Request Successful, response '%@'", responseStr);
                        uploadError = NO;
                        [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] postNotificationName:@"JSONCOMPLETED"
                    } failure:^(AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation, NSError *error) {
                        // if we fail add the score to a send Que and load the old // 
                        NSLog(@"[HTTPClient Error]: %@", error.localizedDescription);
                        // Some sort of Flag that says Update did not happen and Should be added to Que in a singleton.//
                        //  AND Update the Global High Score So it looks like the Score has already been sent  //
                        // it's about responsiveness !!! //
                        if (highScoreIdent==0) {
                            [sharedHSData.myQuedHighScores addObject:userScore];
