Redhat 9 character set problems.

I recently transferred many websites  using php and perl to a redhat 9 server from an older redhat server.
Now, many characters in the web pages that displayed fine on the old server, appear as question marks on the new server.
This seems to be pretty much all non-ascii characters that are in html (or php, or perl..).

It seems it is a character set problem, and it keeps turning up all over the place.

What I would like to do is come up with a system wide solution so these websites that displayed fine on a older redhat machine will display good, without going through each website and fixing any problems.

I was having problems compiling many perl modules until I changed LANG=en_US.utf8 to en_US.

What did redhat do, and how can I undo it?!?
Thanks for any help.
