Having to move servers is always a pain, so I wish you good luck! :D

Webhosts do like to mess up non-English characters during server moves, I hope this won't happen to you.

Long ago, I started using Unicode quotes and apostrophes in my posts (and by extension, the forum names and descriptions) precisely in order to ensure that kind of situation would reveal itself during testing.

It worked magnificently.

Well, my expierence so far has been that I did exactly that, the people moving the sites then picked a date where I wasn't available against my express wishes, and I would find a forum with a bazillion new posts on my return, so no chance of redoing the move. The fixing wasn't fun :evil:

But I guess you have more control over things than I did :D

It's more that if anything dies, shadowm's power of necromancy are unsurpassed. All those years of practicing on his dog paid off... ;)
