I notice Benjamin Soulé's username doesn't show up right, even after your emoji fix.

See here:


Looks like this at my end:

It seems to work fine inside this post's text though.

Edit: Yeah, there's some kind of encoding issue, not a font issue, because if I copy and paste it here, it still comes out "Benjamin Soul´┐Ż", even though I was able to write it correctly above.

Looks like classic double encoding. I ran into the same issue during PlayPico dev.

If you use <meta charset="utf-8"/> in the HTML, and you also send headers from the back end such as content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8, which the BBS does, then the output will get double-encoded (UTF-8 to UTF-8 again) and accented characters will turn into the "unknown character" placeholder. Removing either the charset=UTF-8 from the content-type header, or the <meta charset="utf-8"/>, should fix it.
