Sorry if this is an ignorant question - not real familiar with UTF8 and its 
but I did a quick look at my MySQL database structures, and most of my 
settings are UTF8

 Variable   Session value   Global value
character set client  utf8  utf8
character set connection  utf8  utf8
character set database  utf8  utf8
character set results  utf8  utf8
character set server  utf8  utf8
character set system  utf8  utf8
character sets dir  /usr/share/mysql/charsets/  /usr/share/mysql/charsets/
collation connection  utf8_general_ci  utf8_general_ci
collation database  utf8_general_ci  utf8_general_ci
collation server  utf8_general_ci  utf8_general_ci

I have been using this setup for some time now, with MySql (4.1.x), and IC 
5.4 and not having any issues.

What changes are causing the problems with using UTF and the database 
server, or is this just a html encoding problem?
