Not exactly. As far as I can see, it only changes the value of the 
Content-type: header
in the HTML, it doesn't change the actual encoding output.

I didn't mean the content of the database,. I was referring to the data
that PHP is actually processing, which appears to have been converted
within PHP

It should be "UTF-8", this is the official designation from unicode,
although case will likely be ignored. As far as I know "UTF8" is not a
recognised encoding
  This however, is only the value that will be output as the
Content-Type charset, as noted above.

As I said before. Many of PHP's functions (the string one's for
comparing for example) are NOT multi-byte aware, so are NOT guaranteed
to work correctly.

You did not answer the most important question. What, if any, output
buffering are you using?  Are you using the mbstring module?  If so, is
it set to overload the old string functions?
