Strange characters in email and database

Not sure which forum to use for this. I'm guessing it's iRite but it could be a UE or even a DA issue.

I've constructed an emailing to mailing list system using these three products (DA, UE and iRite). I used DA to to create the admin area with a submit and update form. I have a text area in the form to submit the body text of the email. In this area I inserted iRite so that the email body can be formated. On the details page of DA I've inserted the UE behaviour to send the email.

The client has just sent out an email and I was one of the recipients. What he wrote was "Harvest Offering" but the email says ‘Harvest Offering’. I've looked in the MySql database and what is inserted there is ‘< b >Harvest Offering< /b >’ (I've added the spaces in < b > to prevent rendering on this forum).

Any help would be appreciated.
