Hi Sergio, 

This is a known issue that will be fixed in the next
version.  Here's an email I got from another user that
explains what the problem is:

Thanks for a useful and neat application, phpTest. I
have used it to 
amuse my collegues with wierd tests during the week.

There are however some problems with regard to
If i create an answer that contains swedish national
characters from 
iso-8859-1, the grading procedure fails to give points
for the correct 
answer with some browsers (IE and Safari) since
'answer' is stored like 
'Föö bär' while 'users_answer' is stored like
'Föö bär'
An extra comparison:

             // find out if the answer was correct or
             if (stripslashes($answer) == $row->answer
                 stripslashes($answer) ==
htmlentities($row->answer)) {

Fixed the point grading, but the coloration of answers
is still bad.

I also noticed some problems with answers containing
newlines, i fixed 
it by removing newlines from the answers ;)

Thanks again,
//Tor-Åke Fransson
