I have MySQL on a Linux (RH) server and Mac OSX. I did a mysqldump on the Linux box and imported it into the database on the Mac. The following text is in one of the fields: MauiÃ¢â?¬â?¢s Westin KaÃ¢â?¬â?¢anapali This is supposed to read Maui's Westin Ka'anapali [note: straight quotes shown here are really apostrophes] In fact, it renders properly when served up from the Linux box (Safari client). Served up from the OSX box, it doesn't. All encoding is utf-8, database, page, everything. I even have the following in application.rb: before_filter :set_charset # ... stuff ... private def set_charset @headers["Content-Type"] = "text/html; charset=utf-8" end Questions: Has anyone had this problem (or the related black diamond with a question mark); and is there a known cause/fix?
