Adding this:

1293 $rtbx_senderDetails = decode("utf8", $rtbx_senderDetails);

Just before passing the param to HTML::Template seems to work.

So I'm switching the UTF flag on which means it is handled correctly
by HTML::Template?

Also, is there a more global way to resolve this as there are a few fields?
