search turkisch İ and i, collation, would like both returned
Turkisch İ search also search I

Msg#: 4427642 posted 10:09 pm on Mar 10, 2012 (gmt 0)


I have stored a string in the table with the turkish character "İ"

I would like to be able to select/search "I" and also get the results for "İ" and the other way around.

I have tried playing with collation, it seems i have a few choices: utf8_turkish_ci or utf8_general_ci. But they do not make the select return results with both characters if i search any of them.

What is the best way to achieve this?
I use MySql.

Best regards,

sorry for the trouble.. it now seems to work with utf8_turkish_ci ? maybe my browsers cached something, or i did some wrong sql?

have a nice day
