|+||====== UTF-8 String Handling ======|
|+||PHP treats all strings as ASCII by default. The recommended way of working with UTF-8 strings is to use the mb_string extension. Unfortunately this library is not always available. DokuWiki comes with a library that will handle all UTF-8 string in pure PHP when mb_string is not available.|
|+||Please refer to the [[xref>|
|+||Note: Only use UTF-8 aware functions when needed. If operations can be done on byte level without special care for character boundaries this should be done as it is usually much faster.|
