i am using mysql 4.1 and i have no idea about the settings to be made for storing characters of kind utf8 in mysql.

i am using windows 2000 and installed support for shift jis and utf8 as applications where i have hard coded the unicode values into javascript/jsp application it is displayed well in a web browser and text files displays them well

i want to use jdbc to store data and retrieve it and also how to directly enter the values into database and which frontend to use to enter value as i suppose mysql front does not supports these values as when pasted ??? appears.from command prompt also same is displayed.can any body just guide me how to insert data into the table

(actually i want to insert japanese hiragana fonts into the table i thing utf8 will work for that or shift jis)

any advice ?
thanks in advance
