The problems is often that the text goes trough an extra charset
encodings/decodings when you try to examine it for debugging purposes,
and this can obliterate the traces of the root problem. To spot where
exactly the problem happens, print (e.g. log) the text on various phases
(e.g. when you get the request parameters) with *character codes*, that
is, with numbers. Then check if the printed UCS codes are OK at that
point. (As a catalog of UCS codes you may use "UniBook".)
