    I tried inputting them directly in Dreamweaver but they were just replaced by ???

    I found online that other users were having the same issue and the resolution was to not use Dreamweaver's editor, but to manually input them into the file in Notepad.

    That may work for .html files, but when I tried to save my .php file I got a "this document contains characters that will not display blah blah" error.

    Anyone know how to display Japanese characters in a .php file?

    Thanks.
