The following are some of the considerations for using UTF-8 for the charset in TNG:

  • Your hosting service is using MySQL 5, so the underlying database is UTF-8
  • Your local computer genealogy program can export in UTF-8, such as PAF or Reunion 9 (Macintosh), or maybe only exports in UTF-8 such as RootsMagic 4
  • Your database is UTF-8 or you can create a new database with UTF-8 collation sequence
  • You intend to use Joomla 1.5 with the new Joomla TNG Component which will only support UTF-8
