Q2A handles UTF-8 fine so there must be another problem somewhere.

It could be the theme output is not using UTF-8. For example you should have <meta charset="utf-8"> in the <head> of the HTML. Try changing the theme to one of the defaults (eg SnowFlat) if you are not already using it and see.

Or it could be a plugin changing some text and messing up the encoding. Try disabling the plugins one at a time and see if the problem gets fixed.

Also worth checking you have the mbstring PHP extension installed. Check with your host.
