        This is an old topic but this issue is caused by using an HTML Character Set other than UTF-8. If you upgraded from vBulletin 3 or 4, your language is probably set to use the obsolete ISO-8859-1 character set. This is a very small subset of Unicode and basically only supports 256 characters out of the thousands available. If you're using the English Language, you can probably just change the HTML Character Set in the AdminCP under Languages & Phrases -> Language Manager -> English -> Edit Settings. This setting is case sensitive (for some odd reason) and should be changed to UTF-8.

            Thank you so much. We've had broken character encodings for years. I just finally got fed up and decided to figure it out. And this fix fixed it.
