it depends on where you want to see it.  If it's in putty, for example, you have to set your terminal to UTF8.  Same thing for the console of the server, e.g. export LANG=en_US.UTF-8.  If it's website you have to set the charset to UTF8, which can be done in the content-type header, e.g. Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
