Seems to be working for us here using 2.17.1. I created the database and
told it to use UTF-8 for the database encoding. Then added the following
META tag to the header template

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

People have since been able to view and input international characters
if the browser supports it.
