Do you speak □□□□□?

One of our users pointed out to us that when he saved a page with traditional Chinese characters in his notes, when he retrieved the page, he got back Mojibake inside the notes instead of comprehensible notes because the characters got turned into garbage like □□□□.

We had recently switched to a new library on our servers which assumed a latin 1 character set instead of UTF-8.  After some remedial language lessons, our system is back to speaking the languages of the world.  If you happen to find someplace where it isn’t working though, please let us know so we can send the system back to a refresher course 😉
