errors..

No, it's that everyone who's taken the time to read the documentation for ActiveRecord::Base or worked through any of examples in the many Rails books already knows.

Here's a freebie:

  Person.find(:all, :conditions => [ 'name LIKE ?', 'Joa%' ])

Now please read the documentation.

SQL does not support character expansion on LIKE queries so f.e.
"WHERE name LIKE oev%" will not match on "œuvre" while "WHERE name =
oeuvre" will. This is normal SQL behavior. Otherwise it shouldn't
matter what encoding you use and indeed "WHERE name LIKE '%t%" should
also match on "ţ" (with character set utf8 at least).
