When searching for the word cliché in my wiki, the search results return pages that have
the word in it but it looks like clichÃ© instead of cliché. This is happening with other
words and phrases that use characters like: single quotation mark, double quotation mark,
apostrophe, en dash, em dash, accent acute, accent grave, tilde, umlaut, etc.
What is the best way to fix this?
So you are viewing Special:Search as if it wasn't in utf-8.
If you go to the View menu of your browser, what charset is shown there?
Can you change it to utf-8?
Another option would be that you have some mixed collate in your tables.
But it'd be strange, as I'd expect the problem to appear on all pages,
and searchindex table has an encoding step.
