    This would need to be performed in PhpMyAdmin in the blog_charset table by changing the character formatting. Here is a discussion on the WordPress forum on how to edit this option:

    WordPress › Support » Change of blog_charset screwed up admin functions

    Please download a backup of your WordPress database from cPanel > Backups area before making any changes in PhpMyAdmin.
