I populate a DataSet from an Access file. The problem is that in my Access database, I have a different encoding with characters like:



¾

Notice that the quotes are not the same as the usual ' or ". How can I convert my characters to a UTF-8 set while preserving the data? In the example above, I would want to replace with these:

'
"
3/4

How can I do this in a good way so I do not loose or miss characters?

If you know the source encoding then it is simply applying right encoding sequence to you data.
May be this will help :) http://blogs.msdn.com/cosmin/archive/2008/12/26/utf-8-strings-in-c.aspx
