    Has anyone gotten an engraving on an iPod that includes Unicode characters? I'm thinking about getting an iPad engraved and want to use a non-ASCII character (infinity symbol '∞') in the engraving. Googling revealed that in the past, Unicode characters showed up as question marks in the engraving preview in the Apple Store. However, I just tried it and they showed up just fine, so I'm wondering if Apple now supports them. I just don't want to spend $800 and get a non-returnable iPad with a screwed up engraving.

    Well I answered my own question. The preview shows the unicode characters just fine, but as soon as you hit "Add Engraving" you get a message telling you which characters aren't allowed. So I guess I'll have to come up with an ASCII only message.

    Odd that they would make it seem like it will work, then show that error message. Thanks for sharing, though
