What Collation should I use in my database for storing all type of characters that exist in world

have a website that deals with characters written in Spanish, French, German, English and Catalan language. I run the website using Drupal and MySQL 5.5.

I want to use a collation on my table columns that can store all kind of foreign characters well in the database. For ex - ö, á, ú, ñ, ó,ç etc. I am currently using the collation as utf8_general_ci. But some characters like "ö" are not getting stored in their correct formats. I am confused if I shall change my collation to something different. I am using MySQL 5.5.

I expect the experts here to help me deciding the best collation so that I always am able to store the characters in correct way in MySQL database.

Thanks,
Nitesh
