I don't think that this bug was caused by charset conversion, at least
because around WebMaster are normal quotes and these messy characters are
just around the other words. My guess is that this sql was pasted from
some "clever" program which makes automatically opening and closing quotes
(aren't they on Windows on these positions? When I convert the text from
windows-1252 to iso-8859-1 I get instead these strange chars
opening and closing quotes: `Treasurer┬┤).
