When you have data in a string, Perl remembers the encoding the string's in. If you grab UTF-8 stuff out of a database or from HTTP parameters, it doesn't know what the encoding is, and it will get it wrong. This function returns the strings you passed it concatenated and marked as UTF-8:

sub mark_utf8 { pack "U0C*", unpack "C*", join('',@_); }
