I have an array item with a French accent ([WIPDescription] => Recette Soupe à lOignon Sans Boeuf US). The data is being properly pulled from the database (mysql).
However, when I try to encode this as json using the php built in json_encode it produces a null json value (OS X server: php 5.3.4, json 1.2.1 enabled).
In a Linux server, the description is cut off after the first accent character.
I tried all the json_encode options with no success. Any suggestions?
