From this output I would guess that the encoding you use for webpages is set
to iso-8859-1.  From the Koha Intranet interface go to the
Parameters->System Preferences page. The select the Intranet tab. There is a
setting for "Template encoding".  What is this value in your installation?
It should be set to utf-8.

Also the encodings for mysql tables should be set to utf8 too.

The record you have included above looks good to me.  I imported it in my
test Koha setup and the diacritics display fine.

We tried to place "a" to field 1  (005384XXxa) where first 6  positions is

Please, keep the posts in the Koha mailing list.  This way you have better
chance to get an answer - someone besides me may be able to address your
question.  Also the lists are archived so in the future someone may find
this discussion useful.
