The field I was storing it in was set to ascii_general_ci so I tried chaning it to utf8-bin
and now it works. I can't look at the values in phpMyAdmin (they're displayed as blobs now),
but I can live with that. Thanks for the help. 

BTW, litmus has been very helpful. Frustrating, but helpful. Although to be fair, most of
my problems are due to my own ignorance.
