    i see gibberish. you've got UTF-8 in the meta header; however make sure the web server also has it set. for example, in apache in you httpd.conf or .htaccess file :

    AddDefaultCharset utf-8

    are you using amazon only for the database, or are they hosting your web server as well ?

      If you're seeing gibberish, my bet is that you don't have Unicode support in your OS or your web browser. We're definitely serving up UTF-8 on all our systems, but to answer your question, the entire Uvumi server cluster resides on Amazon now, database and all :)

      Anyway, as a test for you, hit up http://www.google.co.jp/ and if you see boxes and gibberish where there should be text, then you'll know you don't have Unicode enabled. You can also try this page: http://www.ltg.ed.ac.uk/~richard/unicode-sample.html which will be full of little boxes or other gibberish if you don't have Unicode.

      Actually, it might just be that you don't have the Japanese language on your PC... let me know what you find out, I'm curious!

        yep i'll bet its the specific language - i hadn't thought of that. I know i dont have them all installed. When i go to the unicode 2.0 page i see about half of the items.
