Unicode character handling

Hi,

I developing a web application using ruby on rails, apache 2.2.3 and
Mysql. I want to handle the unicode characters(chinese, japanese etc.)
in my application.

I have made the necessary configuration in application.rb ,
environment.rb and database.yml and .htaccess files. Also I am using
encodeURIComponent fuction on javascript to escape the querystrigs.

http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowToUseUnicodeStrings

Now I am able to store the unicode characters in the Mysql database
with utf8 charset when I use webrick server.

But with apache I am getting ???(question marks) or illegal
characters in the databas.

Can anybody help for handling the unicode charactes using Apache.

I am also using AddDefaultCharset utf8 in httpd.conf as well
in .htaccess file.

Thanks

Hitesh

I am using Apache with mongrel cluster.

Are you setting something like this in your HTML files?:

How are you connecting Apache to your Rails app?

Yes Michael, I am setting in my html files.

I made following entry in httpd.conf file for hosting my application
on apache.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName 172.16.0.144
ServerAlias 172.16.0.144

Include conf/extra/myapp.common

<Proxy balancer://mongrel_cluster>
