I've created a db in MySQL with (utf-8) charset and connection collation (utf8_general_ci). The data shown in phpMyAdmin 2.6.4-pl3 is the right char. But I'm using PHP to retrieved the data and shown it in web browser is displayed as ?? char.
I'm just using the echo command to show the result directly as below.
---- code start ----
$area_query = mysql_query($area);
while($area_row = mysql_fetch_array($area_query))
echo "".$arearow["area_".$la]." | ";
---- code end ----
