Suggest a UTF settings note in 3-step upgrade doc (1 post)

    It might be a good idea to put a note in the upgrade instructions at
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress
    regarding the UTF setting.

    The automatic upgrade function doesn't work for me on one of my blogs so I manually upgraded. The instructions say, "Compare your existing file with the new installation file which is named wp-config-sample.php. Either transfer your settings to the sample-file and rename it to wp-config.php or copy the new statements from the sample file into your current file."

    I copied the new statements, including
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    and
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    into my config file and ended up with weird characters in my blog posts in place of quotation marks and some other punctuation. Although I'm not 100% sure, I think I fixed it by going back and removing those lines from the config file.
