Yeah, I did that (the file.encoding thing). That actually caused the intial information getting read in to translate the characters into the box character.

Turns out, as far as I can tell, the characters I was having problems with aren't part of the latin1 set. I'm still not entirely sure why my latin1 database was storing them correctly, but after some reading I realized that I needed to force everything over to the cp1250 set, which has these characters in it. I did that and now things are working. I also now know more about character sets than I ever really wanted to, but if I wanted to restrict myself to fun knowledge, I would have done marine biology or something.

Thanks for the look,
Steve Erdman
