Slovene characters in Views and in MySQL


am having troubles with Slovene characters in rails.

If I set

I am not getting Slovene characters in Views (I mean RHTML). However
everithyng is fine with data that comes from data base.

if I set :

everything works (in RHTM and from database).

However, in MySQL string fields are working, while text field is not
working. I am getting exceptions, if I am trying to save Slovene text to

How to set Slovene, (Czech, Slovak, Croat etc.) characters under Rails,

so … windows … preferences filter encoding and setting to utf’8 does
the trick
