In DHTMLMenu program, if you want to insert non-English characters, please first set your default system language of your computer to be the specified language you are using at first.
For example, if you set the default language of your system to Chinese, Chinese characters should display correctly in menu.
If your OS is Win2000, set it in Regional Options>General>Language settings for the system.
If your OS is XP, open Control Panel, go to "Regional and Language Options", and in Advanced tab, please select "Chinese" for "Language for non-Unicode programs".

On the other hand, "Encoder special character" is a different feature which is designed for CGI programmers who want to create dynamic menus. That's a different thing with accented characters.
