If anybody tried to use the "HotPot v2" module with PHP 5.0.3 and had "strange" characters appearing on their detailed report, where they expected to see multibyte or accented characters, you can correct the report as follows:
- install PHP 5.0.4
- login as an administartor to your site
- from the main course page, click "Hot Potatoes Quizzes" on the activities menu
- click the "Regrade all attempts" button at the top of the page
If you did not use PHP 5.0.3, or you did use it but your detailed reports appear as expected, you do NOT need to regrade the attempts.
