new server / characters in database code

I migrated to a new server and some old sites that were fine are now showing the "diamond with question mark for apostrophes" or missing spaces. Digging through old issues, I found where line 137 in ck editor 5 had a line replacement. Checking a site that is throwing the errors, I see that site was using that correction. (

The database is set to latin / swedish character sets, same as old server.

On page meta is <meta charset=UTF-8>. Seeing another thread I tried a uni-code replacement but it didn't affect anything.

An example page that is throwing errors: which was ok on old server. It's an older site so created before I was using the new mysqli, so it is using the original database interface.

Any ideas what to change on new server to correct? Or why a new server would cause this issue?
