It appears that there is no Unicode support in mysql prior to v 4.1 -

extract from mysql doc...

Changes in release 4.1.x (Alpha)
================================

Version 4.1 of the MySQL server includes many enhancements and new
features: This version is available from our public bk tree and will be
available as a binary shortly

   * Subqueries:
          SELECT * from t1 where t1.a=(SELECT t2.b FROM t2);

          SELECT * from t1 where (1,2,3) in (SELECT a,b,c from t2);

   * Derived tables:
          SELECT t1.a from t1, (select * from t2) t3 WHERE t1.a=t3.a;

   * `INSERT ... ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE' syntax.  This allows you to
     `UPDATE' an existing row if existed from before. (`REPLACE' allows
     you to overwrite an existing row, which is a different thing).

   * Unicode (UTF8) support.

 etc...

regards,

Mark
