Like can I have a username containing the character "ø" or "Å" or anything like that and still be able to enter chat?

Only in character names, if I'm not mistaken.

No, the system will tell you that you inserted an invalid character and to use the back-button to try again.

Those are *not* ASCII characters ;)

What are ASCII letters then?

Oh, they work for character names, my Main character was "Flâmêy" But it stuffs up sometimes and makes weird letters/shapes in place of those, could be from the browser. So G changed it for free, so it wasn't a nuisance.

Flamey May 26 2007 9:10 PM EDT

yeah, that should be an "a" with an arrow above it and an "e" with an arrow above it.
