The utf8_encode() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to encode an ISO-8859-1 string to UTF-8. Unicode has been developed to describe all possible characters of all languages and includes a lot of symbols with one unique number for each symbol/character. UTF-8 has been used to transfer the Unicode character from one computer to another. It is not always possible to transfer a Unicode character to another computer reliably.
