Not sure if you have tried URI::Escape..

    I send that to the log with die and it says... \xc2 \xa2 If I send that to DBI::Mysql it saves it as: £

      To remove that accented character u can use Text::Unaccent
      MySQL itself may be causing your problem - what kind of field are you storing it in? BLOB will screw up big style (binary data does not allow encode/decode), TEXT should be a safe bet (provided your MySQL table is set to UTF-8)
