jsp:include and <%@ include, UTF-8

jsp:include will dynamically detect any changes made to the included file. So in general, it is better to use jsp:include than the include directive.

There is another advantage. If the included file contains UTF-8 characters that are other than ASCII, then using jsp:include will ensure these characters displaying correctly. However, if the included file is a JSP file, you'll need to put this at the beginning:
<%@ page language="java" %>
<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" %>

Converting mysql db to unicode

mysqldump --user=username --password=password --default-character-set=latin1 --skip-set-charset dbname > dump.sql
chgrep latin1 utf8 dump.sql (OR) sed -r 's/latin1/utf8/g' dump.sql > dump_utf.sql
mysql --user=username --password=password --execute="DROP DATABASE dbname; CREATE DATABASE dbname CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;"
mysql --user=username --password=password --default-character-set=utf8 dbname < dump.sql

How to configure MySQL for UTF8 when running MovableType as FastCGI

Use the modified dispatcher.
