When using Asian languages in the event landing page, all the characters change to:  Is there any way I can use asian languages and not have it destroy the text?

Korean.  When I entered the text, most of the time it changed to Boxes or arrows after I saved and refreshed the page.  But, there was a magical time, when everything came together. I had to click everything in just the right order, save the text box, save the page, finish, etc. I believe I also included a tag, in HTML  a tag that said meta charset="UTF-8" ... Not sure if that did it or not.

Hello @DerekS1 ,

 

At this time, most non-Latin text won't save and display properly in the current event tool's landing pages and registration forms.

Interesting, I actually got it to work!  Not sure how/why but it was hit and miss, on whether it would save as Asian text or not. But, my event landing page is up, with non-english text!

Interesting, is there a particular language or text you used?

Interesting, I'll make note of that for the existing tracking for the issue. Thank you very much for the follow-up.

Is there a way to send you a private message? I can send you the event page, and you can look at it.

I'm able to grab a screencap from the account, along with the event's name and URL, and attach it to the case generated from your original post.
