in thread OT? Character set issues with MySQL/CGI::Application

That does provide correct output (thanks), but does not explain why it's happening or how to resolve it correctly.

I don't want to use a hack like that in production code. Hmmmm.

    If you can convert it from UTF-8 to Latin-1 and it then works, it means that the data you get from the data is UTF-8, and not Latin-1 as you think.

    In case of doubt print it out on the console and use hexdump to check.
