UTF-8 is for its web-interface,
not data representation in MySQL.

most of favorite web browser support UTF-8.

anyway, the actual data representation of UTF-8
is just ASCII (UTF-8 use only char in range of
and MySQL do support ASCII.

so MySQL can kept UTF-8 data,
whether it understand UTF-8 or not :)
