UTF-8 is just binary.  If your link can't handle 8-bit characters, then
uuencode the UTF-8 and uudecode it on the other end.  My guess is that's
not the problem -- your terminal (or shell) are probably confused by
UTF-8 and you need to play around with locales.

A bit more detail might help us find the issue, although I kind of doubt
it has *anything* to do with Perl :)
