Lately I labored inside a project in where I have to display japanese text that are originate from database. I already use

meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"

It assistance to display the static text. However when it originate from database it display "??????????" type text.

How do i solve this type of problem?

May be the database charset UTF8 too? May be the connection charset UTF8? Appears such as the data will get transformed into ISO-8859-1 somewhere on the way.

Without more details, it's difficult to find just what the issue is. What DBMS are you currently using? MySQL? PostgreSQL? In either case, I am confident either your database and/or perhaps your connection is not using UTF8.

You are able to improve your connection charset by utilizing among the following functions:

mysql_set_charset('UTF-8');
pg_set_client_encoding('UTF-8');
