Thank you for providing an SSCCE. There's a lot which could be removed from it but the first line is the one setting off the klaxons.

#! /strawberry/Perl/bin/perl

Are you running this on Microsoft Windows? If so, what have you done to confirm that your input data (your results.txt file) is genuinely UTF-8 encoded?

      Here then is an SSCCE which works for me. It shows both the broken output which you should be seeing at the moment and the fixed output after it is properly encoded. I've taken the liberty of cleaning up some of your code and removing all the HTML-generating functions from as those are deprecated. In fact I've removed entirely since you weren't using it for anything else.

      #!/usr/bin/env perl use utf8; use strict; use Text::CSV; use Encode 'encode'; ### read the output my $resultsFile = "results.txt"; open my $fh, "<:encoding(utf8)", $resultsFile or die "cannot open re +sults file $resultsFile for reading: $!"; my @urls = grep {/\/search\//} <$fh>; close ($fh); print "Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8\n\n"; print "<h2>Pre-sort</h1><ul>"; print "<li>$_</li>" for @urls; print "</ul>\n"; print "<h2>Same, but encoded</h2><ul>"; print encode ('UTF-8', "<li>$_</li>") for @urls; print "</ul>\n"; # sort @urls based on the search string my @sorted_urls = map { $_->[0] } sort { $a->[1] cmp $b->[1] } map { m|/search/\s*([^\?]+)\?|; [$_, $1] } @urls; my $csv = Text::CSV->new ({binary => 0, sep_char => "|"}); print "<h2>Broken sorted</h2>\n"; # parse and print print '<table>'; foreach my $row (@sorted_urls) { # print TEMP $row; $csv->parse ($row); my @els = $csv->fields; $els[0] =~ /\/search\/(.+)\?scope=/i; my ($term) = $1; my ($link) = $els[0]; print "<tr>"; print qq#<td><a href="$link" target="_blank">$term</a></td>#; print "<td>$_</td>\n" for @els[1 .. 4]; print "</tr>\n"; } print '</table>'; print "<h2>Same, but encoded</h2>"; # parse and print print '<table>'; foreach my $row (@sorted_urls) { # print TEMP $row; $csv->parse ($row); my @els = $csv->fields; $els[0] =~ /\/search\/(.+)\?scope=/i; my ($term) = $1; my ($link) = $els[0]; print "<tr>"; print encode ('UTF-8', qq#<td><a href="$link" target="_blank">$term</a></td>#); print "<td>$_</td>\n" for @els[1 .. 4]; print "</tr>\n"; } print '</table>';

      Hopefully you can see here that you just need to ensure that you properly encode the output. There are many ways to do this, I've picked one here which is very explicit, for your benefit. See Encode for lots more on how to use this module.

        Yes! That works! Thank you so much, very simple and easy to understand. I really appreciate your (and everyone else's) patience and generosity.
