    Unicode (UTF-8) is still broken on these forums, as of Feb 23rd

    Just as an FYI, posting Unicode characters is still broken.

    Just copy a Unicode character from any other webpage and then paste it to a post here, and then "Submit" the post, and it'll get changed to "?". What's interesting is that these Unicode characters work just fine while editing the post, and also appear just fine during "Preview Post".

    I can get along just fine without these, but I thought you'd like to know.

    The "switches" are in the Super Mod section where I don't have access.... I'll email the IT guys at HQ.

    We made a little progress yesterday.

    Typing: ALT (plus) 0189 now shows ½ ... I've asked the IT guy to give it another shot.

    That'd explain why sometimes characters unexpectedly appear as question marks in my posts.
