I agree that this is confusing.

Plan A: Do nothing. This will avoid corrupting the database by having 4-byte and 2-byte representation for such characters, both in the same table. But it does not solve your original question.

Plan B: Your "replace" suggestion -- I don't know of a way to easily do that.

Plan C: mysqldump the data, then reimport it. But the tricky part is to know what settings (eg SET NAMES, or maybe the different components of that macro) to use in each step. You would need different settings, but I don't know what they need to be. Sorry.

One (or more) database at my work is in the same pickle. For now, I am doing A.
