Issue with special characters in Perl

I am getting some special characters in my browser displayed weirdly, while getting them from from the BLOB of a DB table.

Here it is :
" My name is �Dibyendu Chatterjee�....."

I want all special characters pulled from the BLOB as it is through perl.

Please help...

Can you tell us what the special characters are supposed to be? Also, can we see your code that is producing the output?

Perl has little to nothing to do with the way characters are displayed in a web browser unless perl is changing something. Most likely he needs to define the proper character set or language in the HTTP headers.
