What type of database collation would I use for storing properly Phonetic Symbols?

Right now they store funky with the default setting of SQL 2005.

make sure you column is nvarchar
then check UI that send those data to your DB. All your funky  code looks like some conversion that happens in your front end, not in DB. DB will save whatever comes in.

my db collation is SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
create table #tmp (c1 nvarchar(128))
