T?i c? Viết Tiếng Việt ỏ Blog

I had been planning to post a lot more about Vietnam over the last couple of weeks but have been pulling my hair out trying to get WordPress to properly display Vietnamese characters written in the romanized script, quốc ngữ. Now, after going round & round with my hosting company & looking online to see how other people have solved the problem, I think I have it figured out. At first I was feeling pretty frustrated with Bluehost, but once I got to "level III" tech support, they kept working with me until between us we got the problem solved. I think. Later, I'll post a complete rundown of the problem & its solution, but for now I want to get back to writing about Vietnam, which is very hard to do if you cannot use properly displayed Vietnamese text. Update: Almost fixed, apparently. When I write T?i c? . . . (I can . . .) in the blog entry title, it mangles it, but then gets the res of the sentence right.
