Im helping a freind with some UTF-8 issues and italian letter "".

The response from VBulletin.com is


i asked to the support..and they told me:
vB does not support UTF-8 at this time, nor do we have instructions for doing this. The only thing you can try is this this unofficial and unsupported add-on to see if this works for you:
