Default Special characters.

Guys, all of the sudden the data coming out of a database is adding special characters to the info displayed. I keep getting these diamond-shaped question marks showing up. Please see here: http://ilouie.com/index.php?page=7, and go down to "Top Ilouie Stories". Any suggestions? Thanks

It actually doesn't really work. It removes the black diamonds, but, now it shows A' and some other weird characters...I set all of the "ti"s to UTF8 and it still doesn't work. Now I know I have a problem, the people from the server don't know how to fix either..

These are the characters that are now showing: You‚€™, ¬
