Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I used to have unicode in my profile page

˙uʍop-ǝpısdn sı ɹoʇıuoɯ ɹnoʎ 'sıɥʇ pɐǝɹ uɐɔ noʎ ɟı

which showed up fine but now shows gibberish. Same happens to more mainstream unicode

e.g Hebrew

My name in Hebrew is מוטי

Note the text shows up fine in the preview but here's what it looks like when saved.


Edit: I've edited my profile page on meta to show the problem, the same problem does not show up on area 51.

Seems to be working on Area 51, but not here. – Kobi Aug 12 '10 at 9:16
Your upside-down text works fine for me with FF and Chrome. I have no idea where your Hebrew name should show up. Linking would help. – Ladybug Killer Aug 12 '10 at 11:05
@Ladybug, where does it look fine? In the post it's OK but when I put it in the About me section of the profile page I get the attached screen shot (in Firefox an Chrome on Windows). – Motti Aug 12 '10 at 14:14
@Motti: here: - The only place, where I see something different than "I'm just this guy, y'know?" – Ladybug Killer Aug 12 '10 at 14:45
@Ladybug, as @Kobi said it works fine in area51 but not on SO or meta (see my profile page). The data isn't lost, if I click edit I get the original Unicode string back it just doesn't render. – Motti Aug 15 '10 at 8:24
Same on my profile, of course: – Kobi Aug 15 '10 at 11:00
