Export the Excel data to a CSV (tab or comma-separated) file.
Determine the actual encoding of the characters. You said "unicode", but it might actually be utf8.
Set up the MySQL table(s) to be utf8.
When loading the csv file, state what encoding it is in (unicode or utf8). MySQL will convert to utf8 if necessary.

The HTML page should have the <meta> statement specifying that the page is in utf8. This implies that the SELECTs and the PHP code will not need to do much to "do the right thing" with the character encodings.
