    Correct multibyte character handling

    I have a little board thingy installed on my site, that has problems with handling multibyte characters like:
     …─、。仝:!_∴Å☆
    and
    あっじぇじゃあおをえっはっばおえ (very random japanase stuff, i just bashed the keys )
    but leave some characters intact for bbcode like
    [ ] = : ' " | etc.

    can someone point me to a built-in or handwritten function that converts those nasty characters to htmlentites, like &9875; ?
    Thanks

    edit: I'm sooo jelly of vBulletin's handling of these chars…

    edit2: I'm using a webadmin.php, that can correctly save these characters as html entites in the flat file I use as the database for posts. I just don't know what webadmin.php uses to encode them
