We have existing SQL Server databases with all text fields defined as varchar (not nvarchar) and the text in them is actually UTF-8. Our old system (written in Delphi) will read and write those strings correctly and display the international characters on
a web page etc. We are rewriting our system in ASP.NET and using Datasets to access the data. Reading/writing the data does not treat the data as utf-8. How can I get it to treat it as utf-8?
