Newsflash - Special Characters not showing

Hey everybody,

I’m almost done with this new site :

As you see, i’ve used the newsflasher from the tuts overhere. But in the text i need to use a + and a % sign in the text. But it doesn’t show or leaves the text behind away.

Anybody have these problems in the past ? And what’s a good solution?

Hope this is an easy one … many thnx!
