i'm in a bit of a bind and i'm hoping someone can help me.  i'm 
working on a project in which some data was saved into a postgresql 
database.  It was copied from quark express and entered through a php 
interface.  Unfortunately some of the records have a strange character 
encoding.  For example, apostrophes were converted to %u2019.  All the 
charactes seenm to begin with %u and have 4 numbers after that.  i've 
seen this kind of thing in word documents.  i don't know what it is, but 
i think it's the extended ascii character set.  Anyway, i'm not sure 
what to do about it.  i would like to find a way to convert this to 
simple ascii permanently or else find a way for it to display correctly 
in html and i'm hoping to do this in php.  i would also like to find a 
way to prevent this from creeping into the system.  i'm sorry i don't 
understand the problem well enough, and i'm sorry if i'm using the wrong 
words to describe this problem.  Anyway i really appreciate the help.
