in reply to Handle UTF-8 with DBI

If your database was created specifying utf8 as charset, everything you will get from it will be valid utf8 but not marked as utf8; so you only need to switch on the utf8 flag on. nothingmuch posted a link to an interesting patch for DBD::mysql at node UTF8 vs SQLite.
