Tip: Unicode in Contact Upload Custom Fields

wanted to share this little tip on how to preserve unicode characters when uploading contacts (assuming you use Windows, unsure how this works out in Linux):

1. Create your CSV file with Excel. This file will break unicode characters when uploaded to Campaign Monitor, because it's in ASCII
2. Open the CSV with Windows's default notepad program
3. Save as... and choose "UTF-8" as the encoding method

Voila! Unicode characters preserved.
