What types of character encoding does 123FormBuilder provide?

By default, the forms made with 123FormBuilder are using the most common encoding set, UTF-8.

Any special characters will be displayed on the form without any problem since UTF-8 is the most popular character set used on the web.


  1. Hi
    I’m using the 123Form Builder in my site and it works fine except for one thing: in spite I’ve defined all forms to use “ISO 8859-3 Western Europe and South European” encoding, I receive all emails from 123Form Builder with accented characters all missed up! The same happens if I make a CSV export of the submissions.
    What should I do to have correct characters in these situations?
    Thx in advance.

    My best rgds
