    11Hi!
    2 Your suspicions were right. My collation on wp_options is latin1_swedish_ci. DB_CHARSET is 'utf8', DB_COLLATE is ''.
     2Your suspicions were right. My collation on wp_options is latin1_swedish_ci. DB_CHARSET is `'utf8'`, DB_COLLATE is `''`.
    33Read up on charsets in WP and presumably I'm a victim of the pre-2.2 defaults. I've converted
    44my tables to utf8_general_ci now (using a plugin), and my test no longer fails. My Google News plugin now appears to handle cyrillic, arabic and other languages fine as well. Thank you for your time and feel free to close this bug as solved. You might want to add an admin-warning somewhere if the mysql table types do not match the selected charset for the blog though? Perhaps in the upgrade-script.
