mysqldump 4.0.20a latin1 character issues when importing to newer MySQL

I've googled for solution and wasn't able to find anything that works. Basically, I would do a mysqldump from a 4.0.20a server and then try to import into a version 5 server. No matter what charset/collation I use, certain characters will be either a question mark or garbled when it is imported into MySQL 5.x server. These are special characters like ellipsis, apostroph, mdash (i think) and probably smart quotes as well.

There has got to be a way to do this. I stuck on an old machine running old software just because of this one issue. Please help! Thanks !
