I'm using Navicat Lite to connect to my Oracle research database (Mac OSX). Much of my data is in IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). These are unicode symbols. Is there a way to display the IPA/Unicode in Navicat? Or some other GUI? Or is there some addon/code/plugin/whatever that will show me the symbols?

I can enter Unicode into a field, but when I submit/save or go away from the entry, the symbol I entered reverts back to the upsidedown question mark (display error). Surely I can't be the first linguist (or otherwise) to build a database with unicode characters. What are other people doing about this? How do they make it work? What am I missing here?
My fields are set to char instead of byte; all data is utf-8, even if I don't yet fully understand what that means.
