Hi experts I have a problem which is I can't write arabic text as values of table , here is the steps I have done , please help me and correct me if I am mistaken

this is what I did:
**************************************************
set names utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

create database see;

use see;

ALTER DATABASE see CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

create table one (name varchar(20) ) default charset utf8;
ALTER TABLE one CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
ALTER TABLE one MODIFY name TEXT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

insert into one(name)
values("علي");
**********************************************************************************

everything works fine , this is what appear to me when I press status:
**********************************************************************************

so when I do insert command and write the arabic text , it appears unaderstandable word and is saved like that , why!!! , is it because mysql prompt doesn't support arabic language , or I miss something .

this is what appear to me , at the end , after inserting the values:

ERROR 1366 (HY000): Incorrect string value: '\xE3\xE9\xEF' for column 'name' at
row 1

please tell me how I could write arabic text into database from command prompt , where is my mistake???

thanks in advance
