I have set the .access and all html and php files to be enocding in utf.

however, when i enter Japanese text into the mySQL db via web forms, it is sending garbage.

the only workaround i have now is to manually enter the data into the database via phpAmin...then the data is displayed correctly in the website....so I feel the data is fine coming from the db, but the problem is in sending it...

the database is on a shared server, so I cant convert the database type.... or can I? or... do I need to?

any ideas?

Sounds like PHP isn't set up correctly; if the DB is fine, and PHPMyAdmin can do it, then that part of the backend is ok.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
