    I've got a silly problem. I'm using a MySQL 4.1 with UTF-8 charset.  
phpMyAdmin with UTF-8 charset aswell. The problem is when I enter data  
in phpMyAdmin or any other MySQL tool, I can't see non standard letter  
in my app. But when I enter data in my app i can't see thos chars in  
let's say phpMyAdmin. Notice that my app is UTF-8 aswell... Any ideas  
what's wrong? (PHP 5.0.3)

I had simmilar problem and have solved it with just one line after
database connection:

mysql_pconnect($hostname, $username, $password)

add this line:

mysql_query("SET NAMES 'utf8'");
