Foreign characters get turned into question marks upon posting

Foreign characters (chinese in this case) are previewed correctly, but get turned into question marks upon posting. It'd be nice if the behaviour was consistent.

Ancient Chinese subway poem AskMe followup

In the green, I recently posted a question about a poem I once read but couldn't locate. I was asked to post the poem if I found it, which I have. The original thread has been archived, so I'm posting it here. I hope this isn't an etiquette violation. If it is, I'm sorry.

non-English characters - do I just need to try harder?

I was gonna post a link in MeFi and wanted to have my post contain a few chinese characters. . .believe me this would have been a laugh riot. I pasted in some Chinese and they came out as question marks on the preview so I decided that it would not have been THAT funny after all.

Is there something intrinsic in the MeFi servers that prevent non-English characters, or do I just need to try harder?
