As of July 1, 2022 the dharmamatch site now supports accented and non-ASCII characters in text fields across the site.
Up until this point, while we had active users in over 65 countries worldwide, users in non-English speaking countries would often find that only non-accented, English-based ASCII characters would render best on the site.

Please use this email address to give us feedback on this functionality, or any other feedback you have for us. Please include your screen name if you are experiencing difficulty with the site to help us track down the issue. While we cannot guarantee it will happen every time, many of the suggestions from our members do end up becoming features/changes on the site. We want to hear from you!
