The data is stored fine in the database, as UTF-8 properly. No issues there. And Chrome seems to be correctly detecting the page as UTF-8 encoded. Hard to say with Chrome, really.

So it's probably an encoding issue somewhere between pulling out the data and outputting it to the page. Don't see any recent changes, but it is in BuddyPress so looking at anything that changed there might be where to start.

This appears to be fixed for now thanks to @ocean90. Seems the underlying problem is with the Ideas forum, and we'll have to do some conversion work there eventually.
