How to fix lowercase to small caps/conversion issues in Microsoft Word 2007 for certain unicode characters with diacritics?

I have a text (MS Word 2007) that cites Vietnamese authors whose names are written in latin script with diacritics, stored in Zotero in lowercase (with the initial in uppercase). When using a citation style (for footnotes and bibliography) with small caps/uppercase for the names, Word keeps some characters in lowercase: "Dương Thiệu Tống" shows up as "DƯƠNG THIệU TốNG" instead of "DƯƠNG THIỆU TỐNG". How to fix this? [more inside]

Right Arrow Woes

In a Word document, I'm trying to get a simple right arrow symbol in Times New Roman. However, pasting it in from the Character Viewer inserts it as Arial Italic. Changing it back to Times in Word has no effect - it goes back to Arial immediately. How can I get around this? [more inside]

Please help me solve a maddening problem with Doulos and IPA

Desperate IPA situation! I've opened up an old Word doc that was created using SIL Doulos or SIL IPA93 fonts. These are now defunct. I currently use Doulos SIL and Charis (both unicode, hooray!). The document is substituting certain alphabet characters for much needed IPA symbols. I need to know what those masquerading alphabet characters used to be in IPA. [more inside]

Can't Display Unicode #0CAO -- Part of Emoticon Meme and Thus *Everywhere* -- in Mac Firefox. Help?

I can't get Unicode character 0CAO -- which is a part of a popular emoticon-based meme -- to correctly display in Firefox, despite, as far as I can tell, having the necessary fonts installed on the system. A picture speaks a thousand words, so: These are my Firefox font settings. This is how this page looks in Firefox. This is how it looks in Safari. This page suggested I needed Arial Unicode MS (which appears to already be part of the Mac OS X operating system?). I also installed a Kannada font from here. No go. Any ideas? It's not so much that I really love the meme; moreso that I really detest seeing those Unicode boxes pop up everywhere on God's green Earth when the character fails to display in Firefox.

Modifying php-based web calendar to allow UTF-8 (Japanese) input

Probably easy question about PHP and unicode (UTF-8) and RegEx. I'm trying to modify a php webcalendar (VTcalendar) to allow Japanese text in calendar postings. I've found all the variables to get the UTF-8 headers, and so japanese text manually inserted into pages appears fine. But, there's an input validation thingy I don't know how to modify.
