Daniel Rhodes explores the mb_string module of PHP: what it is and (sometimes more important) what it isn't, how to get it and what the key directives are. He discusses the functions that mb_string gives us as well as regular expressions on multibyte strings, sheds a light on the gotchas and pitfalls, and shows how to get your database and HTML to also talk multibyte.
