Charset problems passing foreign chars to PHP/MySQL from Mac

I've already tried MacToISO, but it doesn't convert "Rhône" to the right character-encoding:
put MactoISO("Rhône") returns "RhÙne"
whereas I need to convert "Rhône" to "Rh%C3%B4ne" in order to pass it to PHP/MySQL and get it to successfully save.
Is there something else I need to do in Revolution (in httpheaders perhaps?) to ensure that data gets passed in UTF8 format?

MacToIso seems right to me. Just make sure to use IsoToMac when your database client runs on Mac.
Better might be UTF8.
