incorrect results with WHERE clause on table with accented characters

I have a table which contains a varchar field containing accented characters. When I do a search with a WHERE clause, it incorrectly matches accented characters, as follows:

select * FROM Attribute WHERE Name Like 'y%'

returns:
1820 Yardbirds
9754 Überdosis G'fühl
2657 Year Of The Cat

Record 9754 does not start with a y. I would expect the accented U to either match nothing, or to match U, but why does it match Y?

Here is the table info:

Table Non_unique Key_name Seq_in_index Column_name Collation Cardinality Sub_part Packed Null Index_type Comment
--------- ---------- -------- ------------ ------------ --------- ----------- -------- ------ ------ ---------- -------
Attribute 0 PRIMARY 1 PK_Attribute A 11584 (NULL) (NULL) BTREE

CREATE TABLE `Attribute` ( `PK_Attribute` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, `Name` varchar(40) NOT NULL default '', PRIMARY KEY (`PK_Attribute`) ) TYPE=InnoDB

Thanks.
