For special characters such as Ormož PHP Version 5.3.3-1 displays Ormo[0098]. Therefore special characters are not being displayed properly on the webpage. 

For PHP Version 5.3.3-0 it displayed Ormož properly. Therefore, PHP Version 5.3.3-1 is messing up all special characters on the webpage. Please respond with a solution ASAP as this problem is costing the company I am working for a lot of money. Thank you.

Test script:
	public static function UTF8Encode($string) {
		$retVal = '';

		$cur_encoding = mb_detect_encoding($string) ;

		if ($cur_encoding == "UTF-8" && mb_check_encoding($string,"UTF-8")) {
			$retVal = $string;
		} else {
			$retVal = utf8_encode($string);

		return $retVal;

Expected result:
See my explaination.

Actual result:
See my explaination.

Figure out what changed between 5.3.3-0 and 5.3.3-1. This was obviously a change done by whoever built your PHP package and not us.

Could you please give me what and where to look for? I have been working on this issue for a week with no solution. I have looked all over google for similar issues and everything I tried did NOT solve the problem. I did NOT install the PHP application on the server, so I do not know what settings need to be made. Could you please tell me what setting and file configurations I should be looking at to get utf-8 working properly for PHP Version 5.3.3-1. Thanks.
