I have found that sooner or later any kind of forum will turn some special characters into question marks. Especially when the official language of the forum is different than the one you intend to use - but I have seen monolingual forums with this problem too, for instance when using some math symbols. Try the Character Map or some similar solution first. If it does not look right - either simplify the spelling or use an image for this special occasion. Simplifying is not a crime, some foreigners probably won't get the difference anyway, as I learned when I tried to make my mum pronounce 'van Gogh' the way it should be pronounced in Dutch. The reaction was: 'but the whole world pronounces it differently!'
