What makes you think that you are getting the wrong characters? Where are you seeing the question marks?

Does your database support multi-byte characters?

Where did you print the characters - to a web page?

Was the page where you entered the characters encoded in UTF-8 as well? If memory serves, a browser will use the same encoding to send a form which was used to encode the page containing the form.

The console most likely can't handle most non-Western characters, so that doesn't mean much.

What's the answer to the second question, about the form page encoding?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
