Which charset?
#1
I am trying to convert from IPB 2.3 to MyBB 1.4 and historically I have been getting strange characters (such as a "&" in a forum title going wonky).

I am assuming this is a charset issue. The IPB database I have is quite old, although I am running the latest software. So my question has a couple of parts.

1) How can I tell which charset my IPB tables are in?
2) I -think- they might be iso-8859-1 (latin1) but I don't see that as a choice in the converter.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
