If he´s really using a any other charset instead of utf8 table, why not 
using utf8_decode and utf8_decode in his php files to solve this?

Two ways to do this:

     1. Insert the characters as their escaped HTML codes, e.g. &#176;
        &#177; &#163; (for °, ± and £)
     2. Set the DB to use a utf8 character set, and insert the
        characters directly as is, without escaping them
