Hi Daniel Tâche
I battled for a long time vs utf8 and TYPO3CMS.

Please do this:

* set localconf.php with SET names utf8; and forceCharset uf8 for BE

* verify that all conf for object PAGE are defined for utf8 (like  
suggested by Xavier)

* run phpmyadmin

* print the table list so I can know how is the collation and  
configuration for each table (I can't exclude that there is mix of  
latin1 and utf8)

* using phpmyadmin access to a table (ie. tt_content) and open a  
record of content (ie. text) where there is stored some text with  
accented letters; edit
it and verify if there is some "strange characters" instead of  
accented (ie: A with a tilde over, etc.)

* render the page and verify what you can see inside - charset is  
correctly recognized as utf8 by navigator (you can see this with  
Mozilla, search within the menus)

* see the source of the page. Do you see some strange chars or the  
accented letters are OK

Send me the report.

Maybe that, if you see strange characters -- using phpmyadmind or  
looking for this in the source of your page - that your MYSQL database  
wrongly stored some accented letters. If this is your problem don't  
worry; I'll send you the instructions and a little shell program to  
run under linux to convert the chars (off I was desperately so I made  
myself this little program...).
