Yes - it's taken from the wild (an HTML page on the internet). Then turned
into XML, then a table extracted etc - so looks to me like non-utf8 stuff
has go in there somewhere.

That's why I was wandering if there was a way to filter out arbitrary text
and make it utf8-safe. You know urlencode for utf8 - or plain text? I don't
want to encode all the spaces and normal / safe chars - just whatever weird
stuff got into the data?
