Important Change in MySQL 4.1
*) Character Sets
With version 4.0, you certainly have a choice of character
sets... but once you've made the choice, you have to stick with it. For example,
with version 4.0 you can't say "this database has character set X (by default),
but Table1.column1 will have character set Y while Table1.column2 will have
character set Z." With version 4.1 you can.
