How to store and read chinese characters

P: n/a

I'm writing a vbscript application that reads UTF-8 XML containing Chinese
characters. Any suggestions how to store these characters in MySql 4.0.x ?

Do I need to set a special encoding such as Big5 on the database ?

Does MySql support storing UTF-8 ? If so what data types / encoding do I
need to use ?

Are there any special considerations for using MySql/ODBC and ADO to get and
put the data.

Any suggestions of where to look for more info or suggestions would be most

Many thanks,
Larry Neylon
