Ora2PG exporter and UTF Characters

P: 1
Hello, I have gotten Ora2pg to work fairly well for me, but I am having an issue where mutibyte characters are being substituted with replacement characters on export from Oracle.

I used both the output to a file and the direct import to a PG database and see a bunch of question marks instead of my multibyte chars.

I have pulled text directly from each database using the exact same DBD::Oracle and DBD::Pg modules and the Oracle set displays the multibytes appropriately, so I believe I have elminated that module as a potential problem.

The oracle characters from the original table look as follows:

The postgres characters from the destination table look like:
<p>16????????16?????0?9????????????????????????< p>

Any hints as to what I need to do to get them corrected. When I output to a flat file it appears as though the question marks are in the flat file so something on export is getting corrupted.
