Accentuation letters in Web forms and SQL

Hello,

We are developing a web application (ASP) on a IIS server
The first thing is a registration form for users.
They fill in their first name, name, address etc... to register to our site.
The info is stored in a SQL database (SQL Server 2005)
Now what is strange is the following.
If the internet browse of the user is configured for characters encoding occidental windows 1252, data is ok in the database (we have a back-office system to see it)
But if the internet browse is configured unicode UTF-8, the accentuation letters in the database looks like "chinese"
How shall we fix this ?
Thanks

Is it easy to reconfigure the database to use UTF-8 ?
And what about existing data an local backoffice applications ?
Thanks

Well well
My concern is finally that some users do not use the code windows-1252 in their internet browser, but UTF-8
Is there a way, when they register themselves and type in a name with accents, that the server (ASP code) getting the data can put it correctly in SQL ?
