    I hope this is the right place to be asking this question... I'm
    relatively new to the world of Unicode and text encodings in general and
    am having a little trouble working exactly how I should be collecting
    information from web forms and how I should be entering this information
    into my database.

    I think there is one question that will shed some light on a lot of my

    Which one of these looks like a proper UTF-8 character: or é ?

    Basically, if I enter the character '' (egrave) into my database, when
    trying to display it on a webpage, it displays as a '?'. If I try to enter
    it as 'é' It displays ok. So does this mean that the correct way to type
    an '' is to actually type 'é'?

    many thanks in advance.
