Hello my name is Stephanie

Hello my name is Stephanie

My name is Stéphanie, for some reasons, some of you call me St�phanie, St?phanie, Stêphanie or Stéphanie. In a globalized diverse world where user travel and buy online, decisions about encoding, formats or characters you accept or refuse on your site and in your database will have more or less unpleasant consequences on human beings. I think it’s time you and me discuss encoding, diversity and user experience.
