I am having problemshowing Arabic characters on a PHP web page when data is coming from MySQL.

I have tried:

1. Setting Collations on DB/Table/Columns to the following utf8 settings one after another:
- utf8_unicode_ci
- utf8_general_ci

2. Also when do the following after DB connection it show question marks instead of gibberish characters:
mysql_query("SET NAMES cp1256");
mysql_query("SET CHARACTER SET cp1256");

The regular Arabic data displays fine if its not coming from MySQL.

Please let me know what step do I need to take.
Thanks in advance.
