Configurations on which I've noted this bug:
Windows 2000 Server, Apache1.3.29, PHP(tested versions: 4.3.3 and 4.3.6, both CGI and SAPI module), SQL Server 7.0

This bug is NOT present under Apache2 and IIS.

Some of Polish characters are changed to completely different chars, while communicating with a MSSQL7. Example below is best description of problem.

As a production server I use Apache2 + PHP, but because it is recommended to use Apache1 with PHP, so I've tried to downgrade, and then I've encountered this problem.

Now I'm running Apache2 on port 80 and Apache1 on port 88, so this is link to script with bug:
and same script through Apache2 (without the bug):

My changes in php.ini:
mssql.datetimeconvert = Off
mssql.textlimit = 100000
mssql.textsize = 100000
mssql.max_procs = 250

Reproduce code:
// connection to database already established
echo $sql = "SELECT '??'";
echo "<br />\n";
$re = mssql_fetch_row(mssql_query($sql));
echo $re[0];

Expected result:

Actual result:

This is not a bug in PHP, but a feature in the DB Library from Microsoft. The DB library uses OEM to ANSI convertions depending on the context the library is used in (CLI,CGI,SAPI).

You can control how values are returned from the 'Client Network Utility'
