In laymans terms UTF-8
In a site converted to 2.0.1, I'm getting these strange symbols (like the trademark symbol) where there had been apostrophe's and quote marks. I guess I had copied this punctuation into CityDesk from the orginal source.
Are you sure that the Character Coding from the previous version is deleted and replaced with UTF-8?
Look for a string like this at the top of the source code:
I got a note from the Fog folks that they don't insert the UTF-8 stuff into converted sites. I had to do that myself in the home page template to correct some bullets that turned into gabage characters. I haven't done it on the other templates. I guess I'll have to or else locate the few pages that have the crazy characters.

It's in the help file. Online:
The next beta of 2.0 will automatically update any templates you already have to change the encoding to UTF-8.
What is wrong with iso-8859-1? Why is UTF-8 better?

There is a good intro to Unicode and how to avoid confusing character sets and encodings etc:
