Thanks, I'll try to familiarise myself with whatever's discussed in the manual as well some of the PHPMyadmin basics.

By the way, I haven't converted anything yet (that's why I posted here). The current settings, accordng to PHPmyadmin, are as follows:

* MySQL connection = "UTF_general_ci"
* Database = "latin1_general_ci"

Charset (per SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'character_set%';):
* The character sets of the client, connection, system and results are all "utf8".
* Those of the database and server are "latin1".
* That of the file system is "binary".

The manual speaks of testing before production. Do I need to duplicate the database and try things there?
