[Phpmyadmin-devel] charset question

About this bug report (moved by me to support).

I don't understand what he means by "a latin1_swedish_ci field that 
holds data which represents windows-1251 characters".

The test he suggests today works as he says. I used Windows's charmap to 
choose the cyrillic character O with a vertical bar (represented here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrillic_alphabet by value 424). I inserted 
this character via a small application as he suggests. With the small 
application (forcing a windows-1251 charset) I see the character 
correctly. In phpMyAdmin, using an hex transformation, phpMyAdmin 2.8.2 
displays c3 b4. Without a transformation, it's not the right character.

Can someone explain me what is this c3 b4?

Because in win 1251 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CP1251
this O vertical bar character should be D4.

Note: In the thread I made a test with what I think is the proper way of 
inserting cyrillic characters.
