The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I connect with the terminal client, when I do a select, I get exactly the data I expected AND when I check with one sniffer, I see that the data that is being transfered on the wire is exactly that data in UTF8. Cool.
However, when I try to do the same from PHP, I just don't get the render some of the characters correctly. I have tried setting the client encoding with these (with different combinations and each one separate):
When I check with the sniffer, no matter what I do, I never get the same bytes on the wire (onr on the script result, by the way). For instance "ó" would be sent as 0xc3 0xb3 to the terminal (as expected), but when I do that on php, this is sent to the client instead: 0xc3 0x83 0xc2 0xb3

Thanks for the prompt reply. I use mysql_connect to connect to the local database, the usual way. The data displays correct in the mysql terminal client, just PHP is either not receiving the correct data, or is messing it up. How do I trace this behavior?
