WP????????????????UTF-8?????????????????

??????????????…

??????????

Hmmmm… This is super annoying. After some WordPress update I’ve completely lost the ability to use UTF-8 on my blog. Utterly ridiculous.

I was hoping it was simply some silly thing going on with encoding tags embedded in a theme or something similar, but nope — all UTF-8 seems to be utterly broken at the moment. I don’t really feel like mucking about with MySQL right now, either, though that seems a possible place to check.

I might move back to using boring old hand-written pages and drop a comment plugin into them instead of messing with this increasingly annoying and arcane blogging system. I have more freedom with hand-written pages, anyway, and a script can generate the necessary interlinks.

Bleh. The utter state of technology today. I feel the urge to write something snarky in Japanese here, but it wouldn’t be readable — so just use your imagination.
