MySQL Server Charact set = UTF8

character_set_connection utf8
character_set_database utf8

character_sets_dir c:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\share\charsets/
collation_connection utf8_general_ci

Now MyDAC doesn't support UTF8. We are planning to add this option but not in the nearest time.
