Ampersand question

Ampersand question
I'm entering special HTML entities into the database (characters from the Unicode ranges Latin Extended and Latin Extended Additional).

This works fine - the characters arrive in the database as they should - i.e. as entities like "ḳ", a string beginning with an ampersand - and I can retrieve them with an external script no problem.

What I don't understand: When Dbmansql itself displays these characters - in the admin interface as well as in ordinary db calls -, it encodes the ampersand, and instead of an "a" with a long superscript dash, I see "ā" (not sure how this shows in the forum, though).

Any clues?
