French characters in Varchars with Java driver

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm wondering, in the I18N'ized version of our application, if someone is
running it, say, on a French system, where certain characters have accent
marks, and such characters are saved into a MySQL database from Java Strings
that go into Varchar fields, do I need to process those Strings in any
fashion before/after they are moved to the database? -Ike
