I pasted the character into a hex editor and it turns out to be E280A8, which googling leads me to believe is a unicode linebreak.
I'm running Ruby 1.8.6
Comments and changes to this ticket
I had the same problem. I found that my text is correctly stored in the database (mysql), but it was incorrectly generated in the js resulting in an unwanted line ending in my js
I solved this by adding
to my database.yml. Then rails correctly handles the utf8 in my database and handles the linebreak correctly. The generated js does not contain unwanted line endings anymore and characters like é show up correctly (instead of a ?). See http://oldwiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowToUseUnicodeStrings under "Configuring the database connection"
