I was trying to add a biog' to my page and it was rejected because a unicode was not supported? What does this mean. I could really use some help. Thanks

Hello Caroline,

If your bio is stored in a word processing system (like Word) and you've cut and pasted the document into the submission, there may be some hidden symbols which are not supported by IMDb. 

You can either manually type the bio directly into the submission or type the bio on Notepad and cut and paste the bio from there.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions. 

From the IMDb Help Center Page:

We are making slow and steady progress on Unicode support. Note that until every single part of our system supports Unicode, none of it works. Unfortunately, we don't have a timetable that we can share, but please be aware that we are working on it.

Thank you so much, I will give it another go and see if typing direct does the trick. :)
