Weird characters in WordPress Posts

I recently started seeing a lot of strange characters appearing in my WordPress posts since upgrading to a recent 3.2 beta. Some of the symbols were and ’.
I did a quick search and found that if you comment out two lines in your wp-config.php file it corrects the problem.

Comment out the following two lines.

define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
define('DB_COLLATE', '');

Once commented out you will see the changes instantly reflected.  Problem solved
