I don't understand what the difference is between Mysql Charset, Mysql Connection collation and the database collation.
Can anyone help me to explain this?

My "Mysql charset" and "Mysql connection collation" are utf8 and the database collation is latin_swedish.

Everytime seems to work fine, no errors.
Almost all international characters are displayed well.
Only a few users have problems when they send messages with internation characters. A few characters (ok in my messages) are displayed with "?*" in their message.

I can't find the solution.
