What characters are missing exactly?  From what I can access on your forum, all appears to be displaying correctly.

Also are you sure you've upload all the language files as your new.gif is missing for your current language:

I've seen that this problem it's only in the forum name, and page title ... why?

How did you input those characters?

Also did you run both process?
/index.php?action=convertutf8
/index.php?action=convertentities

I typed it normally. I re-typed them and now works fine, but in some administration/help text there still are missing characters ... but it's strange, because Catalan have quite spetial characters, but only very few of them are missing, and not allways xD without rule

thanks anyway !

Are you using the 'normal' or utf8 version of your language files?  Either way have you manually edited them before?  If so what text editor did you use to edit them?

I have not edited anything, and I'm not given any option to select a utf8-type, I'm running standard xD

There are two download package types for your language, 'normal' and UTF8 which one are you using?  You might have to download the utf8 version and use that for better 'special' character support.
