TypeMover is a plugin that adds backup, restore and migration features to a Movable Type weblog. Among a very interesting list of features is a little gem for me:

TypeMover will convert your data from it's original to the new server character encoding as needed. This is very useful when moving from an MT2 server using ISO-8859-1 into an MT3 server using UTF-8

Yes! Finally I'm going to be able to switch to UTF-8 while keeping everything in the same weblog.

Hope you like it :-)... One my main "itches" was UTF-8. Those damn americans never think that the world needs anything above ASCII's 7 bits.

Anyway, just let me know if you have any problems.
