use CGI qw( -utf8 );

Will do this automatically for you; the caveat being it will cause problems with file uploads. Otherwise it's quite handy.

    This did not work... After thorough research, apparently the problem resides within the STDIN, the variables from the FORM element are always raw, therefore never encoded. To resolve; decode the elements to UTF8. I can't seem to find a "global" method of doing so, so calling a loop that flips through the array of FORM elements will seemingly have to be my fix.

      This does exactly what you describe: decodes to utf-8. It's high time you show a minimal set of code to replicate the problem you're having. It's almost certainly not what you think it is.
