I am facing some problem when i try to display thai and russian language characters on my web page, the characters are not displaying correctly. I have used utf8_encode() method when saving characters and utf8_decode() method when displaying it.

Also the page encoding is

content="text/html; charset=utf-8"

but still it is not working correctly.

I have tried this sentence which is in russian.

Используйте расширенный поиск для ограничения поиска по языку и стране, без перевода поиска фразу.

but it is displaying like that.

Исп 86;льз& #1091;йте рас 96;ире& #1085;ный поиск для огр 72;нич& #1077;ния поиска по языку и стране, без пер 77;вода поиска фразу.

You dont use utf8_decode/encode at all as it's not needed here.
