Everything appears to work except that text fields containing a Unicode
non-breaking space (0x00A0) are truncated just before that character. I
can see the field in the dump file and it looks OK, but it doesn't all
make it into the new database.
Well, there are too many aspects to this, but the first is the character set that "mysql"
expects for input. If, say, it is USASCII (note that between the character set that
"mysql" takes for input and the character set in the table no association is needful),
the "nbsp" is out of range. (It is, of course, not nice if "mysqldump" yields an output
that "mysql" cannot read.) Try entering it with some escape-sequence (this one is based
on the original SQL with features from PL1, not from C, which MySQL supports if 'ANSI' is
'some text ... ' || X'A0' || ' ... more text ...'
or (slightly less PL1)
CONCAT('some text ... ', X'A0', ' ... more text ...')
