Probably you have somewhere an encoding problem.

There are tree places you can verify your configuration:
- html
- php
- mysql

For HTML - see meta tag mentioned before by others.

For PHP - try to verify what is your currently selected encoding -
see below:
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
$charset = mysql_client_encoding($link);
printf ("current character set is %s\n", $charset);

For MySQL you have two options:
1) session encoding (SET CHARACTER SET x)
