2.31 not displaying superscript characters properly

Recommended Posts

I migrated from 2.2 to 2.31. I've got everything working but superscript text such as "™" or "®", which previously worked properly in 2.2, is now displayed as "�".

 

Anyone know might be causing this?

The problem is that the original text ("hard coded binary characters") was in Latin-1 encoding, and the new system wants UTF-8. Simply copying it over won't work, as the byte code values will be wrong and invalid for UTF-8. As you discovered, the preferred method is to use HTML entities.
