I know this can be a real messy problem, but if you can fix it, that would be great. It's a problem I see all over the web, so I kind of don't expect things will be any different here. But, hey, it can't hurt to draw your attention to it, and ask!
I just created a reply in another thread, and just for fun I used a couple "double-bit" (?) characters as bullet points in a short list.
I inserted three of these "black-diamond-minus-white-X" characters from the Mac OS Character Palette:
As you can see, they show up in the message composition window, like so (screen shot of this message before I posted it):
They even appear when I hit the "Preview Post" button. But, once the post is submitted, they appear as their spelled-out html character entity equivalent, as below:

I know it has something to do with the specifications that are set for a pages dispaly of character encoding, and that this can be different in various sections of the same site if the CSS isn't created properly. Adobe had some massive problems with disparate character encoding on their forums (they still are, I think, with the adoption of their now-very-crappy adoption of Jive's Clearspace forum script), so if you can't fix it, or don't want to both, I understand.
But, like I said...it can't hurt to ask!

That's an HTML feature, which many forums (including this one) don't support by default. We have HTML posting turned off to avoid malicious code. I know there's probably no worry with most of the "regulars," but there's new users and spammers out there that would certainly take advantage.
