    I am having a small problem with some odd characters showing up in my forum. This character:� I google'd it but was unable to find a solution. I think what the problem is is that my database is in unicode and the forum is in plain english. When I go to switch it to english-unicodeutf-8, however, it won't display a lot of the english words on the page.

    I also tried converting the HTML to utf-8 characters but that didnt work either.

    Note: it's a SMF forum.

    The forum looks great except for these stupid little characters showing up. Hard to be taken seriously with little bugs like this.

    If anyone has experience and can help please PM me. I'd rather not post the URL publicly.
