Hi,
I have a DB where I keep some russian text. And a php script which queries the DB and echo's this russian text on the to the browser.
When I check the table which contains russian text using PHP MyAdmin, I can see the russian text correctly. But when I open the page, all russian characters are appears as ? (Question Mark)

I have this
<?php
header('Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8') ;
?>
in the begining of the script but it doesn't help.

Can someone help me pleaseee...

better try to set it on the page itself
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Also check connection to the database.
Use mysql commands (before your first query)
SET NAMES 'utf8'
SET CHARACTER SET utf8
for right encoding.
