I had unicode related problems which usually come from mixing different 
encodings. In my case pretty much all my data also comes from a 
relational database. Also, not all versions of Zope support unicode 
properly for all types of objects. I had problems trying to upgrade my 
data.fs between zope versions due to unicode issues. I don't recall all 
the situations I came through and I can't help you much more here.

So, I guess your issue is that your page templates are combining data 
from other zope objects which are in different encoding. I doubt that 
you can convert all your objects to the same encoding as a general rule 
because that will be dependent on the specific object implementation. 
Even if you convert the data part of the objects, the code might still 
not work properly. But I don't know which type of objects you are 
talking about. Maybe one approach would be to export your data.fs as a 
whole or in parts using XML format and then try to make sure its 
encoding is utf-8.

Just vague considerations and a long shot, sorry if it doesn't help.
