I am checking the admin options now but don't see it yet.  HTML and BBC code is usable here though.

Yep you got to use HTML of BBC Code.  I have all BB code features allowed. 

Here are many of the BBC Code tags on Wiki, will this do what you want?

You also could if you had to put what you want into an image and attach that.  Sorry I ain't being restrictive just seems to be a limit of the SMF platform.

One option to try might be the configuration in apache (assuming your using apache).
eg. adding/changing (where ever it shows up - usually commented out):

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

I can't remember how to do it if your using some sort of cpanel - but im sure it pretty easy

The other option might be - if you have access to the forums templates adding the metatag
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
oops just looked - you already have that one :-)

of course these may break the forum if the underlying code doesn't like utf8, but if your using a recent php you should be ok

Hope this is of some help

This board can't be too bad...I've been accessing it from the very start with nothing but my cell phone.
