A custom script does not read foreign characters found in a tab or comma delimited file

Why aren't foreign characters in a tab or comma delimited file read by a custom script?


Connect PHP API (File Manager, Customer Portal, Process Designer)


If a field in a tab or comma delimited file contains foreign characters, the field must be surrounded by double quotes.


PHP's fgetcsv function which is typically used to parse tab or comma delimited files will ignore some UTF-8 characters in a field if they are not preceded by an ASCII character.
