Are Foreign Languages Possible in Forum Titles?

Post by Nojiri » Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:08 am

Is it possible to have foreign language characters in Forum or Sub-Forum titles? I have Japanese set as my default language, and have no problem inputting Japanese characters in the body of posts, but when trying to use them in the titles of either Forums or Sub-Forums, or their descriptions, they only come out as "???????" When I input them in titles when creating new Forums or Sub-Forums, they show up ok initially, but as soon as I click "Submit" they turn to "?????" Is there a work-around?

ps. Apologies for the double-post. I initially posted this in reply to a search topic, then realized the original post was in the 2.0.x forum. I am running 3.0.4.
