Comment(by TomH):

 This is a tricky area as there is no way to tell what encoding a browser
 has used for the form data it sends, or to tell it to use a particular
 encoding.

 There are various things you can do to try and persuade the major browsers
 to send data as UTF-8 but nothing that is 100% guaranteed to work
 everywhere.
