5.2.12 Character Set Information

By default, daisy is configured to use unicode (UTF-8) everywhere. For the part content you enter in the wysiwyg or source editor, you can use whatever unicode-supported characters (more correctly, it is limited by as far as Java supports unicode). Metadata however, such as the document name, fields, etc is stored in a relational database, MySQL, which needs to be configured with a certain encoding (in West-Europe often latin1) and hence is limited to the characters supported by that encoding. Contact your system administrator if you which to know what encoding that is, and thus to what characters (glyphs) you're limited.
