I'm trying to insert the checkmark character in a text field but it appears as a "?" when I import it. In the Excel file I have some thing like this :

□ - Backup all the system

□ - Make an image ...

I have used OpenOffice Calc and save the file as text.csv with character set Unicode (UTF-8). When I import the file (in the Import a CSV FIle page), I can see the information correctly but in the module itself, the information is written like that :

? - Backup all the system

? - Make an image ...

What's wrong?
