international characters for "Steps" Answered

The rich editor 'comment box' and 'Instructables editor' is able to handle international characters, such as: é, ê, ç, ¿, ñ (possibly others), however the "Title this Step" in an Instructable does not reflect the same editing perimeters. Instead, displays "�" (displays as black diamond with white question mark).
This also happens with the yellow description box overlays.

This may be user error, but seems weird that I can see certain text in one field but not another.

The problem with step titles may be that those same strings are used in the URLs to access the steps. HTTP URLs are technically limited to 7-bit ASCII, with some characters like "#", "&", etc. reserved for special cases.

This is a problem that we've known about, and is on our list to fix. Unfortunately, there are several other things that take precedence right now.

Hi, Matt! Welcome back :-) Did you see the the posted solution to "That was very impolite!"? I think that user might be on to something....
