Hello forum, I have a problem with special characters when copied from a mail in notes. The situation is a bit complicated and looks like this: our client uses Notes as well as an application we developed in FileMaker Pro 11. Our application exchanges data with a MySQL database using PHP commands.

Now this exchange doesn't work when the user copies text from the Notes mail client into a FileMaker textfield, the MySQL database rejects the data. The same data can be transferred without problems if the users first paste the text in a simple text editor like notepad, then copies it again from there before pasting it into the FileMaker fields.

So we concluded that there must be some hidden characters that get filtered by the text editor.
Is there a way to avoid theses characters being copied in the first place?

Thanks for any input. When answering please keep in mind that we are complete noobs when it comes to Notes, nobody here ever worked with the system so far.
