Ok, this is bugging me again, so I'll say something! Procedure (on WinXP and Opera7): (1) Write a post with a special character, like θ. The character displays fine on the page. (2) Edit that post. The character appears fine in my text box. (3) Save changes. The character appears as a '?' on the page. Suggested solution: if possible, replace the special characters with their original incantation, I.E. θ with & theta ;, when you populate the "Edit Post" page.
