i'm using phpBB2 forum ( linux apache ) connected to a MS SQL 7 server with

Using protocol 7.0, the french caracters ( accents, é à ... ) are not
handled correctly.
I've noticed that 7.0  deals with the special caracters in a different way (
due to unicode ... )
So i've tried to change client charset to FR ( and other ISO charsets ) in
the config
file but nothing works.

For now i only have 2 options:
 - switch back to 4.2 which works.
 - forget french and use english only

Any help apreciated.
