if you can offer me an understanding of why it will work with a simple change of some wp-config.php settings (and how the current settings create the odd characters i'm seeing) i would be very appreciative. i would really like to gain a better understanding of the nuances surrounding UTF-8 support in WordPress.

i wasn't trying to outsmart WP. my 2.0.2 installation had some undocumented core and default theme file modifications. and i didn't want these mods to potentially result in WP 3.2.1 not working as it was designed to work.
btw, thank you for your help.
