    That does not solve the problem. For example the EURO sign is displayed entirely differently as three encodings (%xx) and I might later need languages with accents. I do not understand why this is so hard to figure out, or why nothing works. (further head banging to follow)...
      I forgot to close the question, I've sorted it. It was a mix of some settings in Perl, ensuring MySQL is in UTF mode and ensuring 'use utf8' is in ALL perl files. Writeup is here.

        obligatory :) use CGI or die;

        This comment is crap Some guides have a version of the above using encoding in the statement. Do not use this - it is broken!
