Special characters in a TCPDF

Jeff asked
Last Modified: 2017-04-11
I am pulling a title out of a database "WHAT's NEXT"

Here is the tcpdf cell code: $pdf->MultiCell(0, 0, $SemTitle, 0, 'C', false, 0, 10, 127);

Results on PDF: WHAT'S NEXT?

I have tried
$SemTitle = html_entity_decode($row['EvtTitle']);

$SemTitle = utf8_decode($row['EvtTitle'])

$SemTitle = utf8_encode($row['EvtTitle'])

Not sure if I should be working from the db query or where it is in the ftpdf cell
