There are a lot of causes for the problem you have observed. The primary cause is that REQUEST is not giving you UTF-8 in the first place. I imagine that this situation will change over time, but currently there are many weak links that could be to blame: neither mySQL nor PHP5, html nor browsers use UTF-8 by default, though the data may originally be. See stackoverflow: how-do-i-set-character-encoding-to-utf-8-for- default-html and java.sun.com: technicalArticles--HTTPCharset I experienced this problem with Chinese, and for that I'd recommend http://www.herongyang.com/PHP-Chinese/
