Try this simple code, copy and paste the characters, it doesn't work for me.
The table still displays question mark "??".

<html>
<meta http-equiv=\"Content-Type\" content=\"text/html;charset=utf-8\">

<form accept-charset=utf-8 method=post action="">

<textarea name=ta cols=28 rows=6></textarea>
<input type=submit>
</form>

</html>

<?php
$data = $HTTP_POST_VARS['ta'];

echo "<br><br>characters: $data";

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "test") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db('bug', $conn) or die(mysql_error());

$q = "INSERT into bug (message) values ('$data')";
mysql_query($q, $conn);

?>
