I got a problem with one of my form. I got a multilingual site with french, english and spanish with a search form on the home page.

the problem is when i put any special caracters in the title, my special caracters appear as unrecognized on the web page and if i encode them with &eacute, the & become an & and dont appear as wished

Any idea how to fix this?

You may need to change your Title to be a HTMLText/HTMLVarchar field instead of just Text/Varchar so it will escape the HTML elements properly
