Hi *, I keep having a PGERROR

PGError: ERROR:  invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0xa9

My db (postgres) is UTF-8, and I set encoding:unicode in database.yml.
Someone else had this problem and solved it ??

check your data,  probably  your code tries to save some string that
is in non-utf8 encoding.
