As far as how the data got there in the first place, it was because of the wrong character set on the input page. Fixed that (although there may be more).
For this particular issue, I was able to fix it manually by pulling the text from the DB into a TEXTAREA in a form with the correct character set and submitting to an update page.
Are you looking at the raw output or what ends up on your screen?
Yup- raw output.
