If your wiki is in the ISO-8859-1 encoding, that encoding doesn't have all
international characters, so the browsers convert the posted foreign
characters to their HTML entities.
In this case you can enable UTF-8 in your wikis, but only if your group and
page names, as well as upload names, don't contain international characters.
See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/UTF-8 .
New, empty wikis can have UTF-8 enabled without a problem.
