Good morning, I have almost the same problem, but just with cirilic characters.
I have this state on every page, html and php: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> if I try to show cirilic characters I don't have problems. If I try to insert names in cirilic then I have problems with some characters only. If I insert the names in latin characters I don't have anykind of problems. I have tried with phpMyAdmin interface. I can insert cirilic characters without problems, but if later I take this datas to my web site I obtain just ????????. And if I read the cirilic characters I have introduced by the website there is no sense. I have tried changing the charset on both, database and website, without results. I have changed from POST to GET without fine result. Maybe an Apache problem? I am testing it right now. Lost, just lost.
