All my entries in text areas and text input fields are sent back ISO-8859-1 encoded.Not sure if it will work in your case, but you can try:
I do not use a special database, I use a simple text file.Converted to what? 8859-1, ASCII or something else?
This is converted by "recode" and checked by "bless hex editor"
But despite this message, that's utf-8 all the German special characters are shown as 2 strange charsCan you give a few examples? We need to make sure things are only getting mangled once. Also check what happens with œ (oelig) and curly quotes; these specific characters are often useful as diagnostics.
