Mystery of string truncated after foreign char!

I execute a simple insert, with a few characters in French, and the string gets truncated. What is worse, and even more mystifying, is that the query works if I do it directly (in, say, phpMyAdmin.).

The following code inserts only "World/Fran".

Please help! This is driving me nuts! Thanks.


CREATE TABLE `catmv` (
`oldtopic` varchar(85) NOT NULL default '',
`newtopic` varchar(85) NOT NULL default ''

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "mypassword");
mysql_select_db("dwodp", $conn);

$sql="INSERT INTO catmv (oldtopic, newtopic)
VALUES('World/Français/Régional/Europe/Suisse/Enseignement_et_formation/Langues', 'World/Français/Régional/Europe/Suisse/Enseignement_et_formation/Disciplines/Langues')";
echo "sql=$sql<br><br>";

echo "Finished.";
