It's all about charsets. I'd just use UTF-8 throughout the application (no need to convert).
In b2evo however, there are several charsets: db_charset, evo_charset and io_charset.
You have to send the browser in which encoding the page is (e.g. "Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8") and then use UTF-8 (e.g. "SET NAMES utf8" for the DB connection, then MySQL will send and expect data encoded in UTF8).
But beware: there are some functions in PHP, which still do not support UTF8 correctly AFAIK.
