Problem with echoing variableecho

Ok, so what you need to do, is to tell the database that the client (your PHP script) wants UTF8 encoded strings. This is performed by adding the following line after having connected successfully to the database (after mysql_connect()):
mysql_query('SET NAMES utf8');
Don't forget to also set the character set header to UTF8 in your HTML document, e.g.:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
Hope that helps

mysql_query( "SET NAMES utf8", $dbconnection );
Set Your HTTP Headers also
header( 'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8' );
