The PECL GeoIP page links to <http://www.maxmind.com/>, and a
search for "charset" reveals the following:



    the binary database return the cityname in iso-8859-1 by default.
    I guess your output is in a different charset. 

    The CAPI based wrappers have a set_charset method. 

    If you use any other API, use the language charset encoding to
    transform iso-8859-1 into the desired output format. 

    for php you might use: 

       $city = mb_convert_encoding( $old_city, 'UTF-8', 'ISO-8859-1');


       $city =  utf8_encode ( $oold_city )
