in reply to UTF8 driving me up the wall again!

if you are using MySQL then you may want to try the following connection.
our $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn,'User','Pass',{mysql_enable_utf8 => 1}) o +r die "$DBI::errstr\n";
also don't forget to include the following line at the head of your script
use utf8;

    The utf8 documentation says (bold as found in the documentation):

    Do not use this pragma for anything else than telling Perl that your script is written in UTF-8.

    ... so that won't help at all with encoding troubles related to input and output of data, which is what the post seems to be about.

    Thanks - its actually working fine in the perl side of things - just seems to be phpmyadmin thats not liking it :( I've even tried setting up the latest version in a www folder... and that has the same problem. Guess I'll have to keep digging around :( (as far as I can see I'm doing everything correctly in the perl/mysql side... so I can't see whats causing it).... the joys of unicode :(
