I noticed today that edits with diacritics are no longer WYSIWYG.  You see them in the preview, but they turn into garbage in the edited message.  I haven't noticed the problem with new posts, but if something broke recently, it may be there also.  Checked this with a new message--also bad.  It had to have broken in the last three days.

"ue" is a German equivalent of "Ã1⁄4"  which showed as "ü" in the preview.

Perhaps the problem that you have reported may be related to other character-encoding problems that I've observed on the message boards today. Please see my report here:
