Code:
If so, then what is wrong with the second quote mark (Unicode value) in the old site???

Those quote marks are in an encoding not processed by the PHP / HTML as proper "UTF-8" in this legacy vBulletin LAMP application, and so it replaces it with the "WTF?" mojibake symbol.

When you look on the old site, you are seeing encoding processed by PHP based on the legacy PHP encoding to HTML.

The new site does this totally different, that is why it displays properly over there in communityville.

If you edit the old title and replace those oddly-encoded chars with the same quotes as on your keyboard the encoding will change, all will be great again and the world will be as one Smilie

utf8_encode - Encodes an ISO-8859-1 string to UTF-8

SYNOPSIS
string utf8_encode (string $data) DESCRIPTION
This function encodes the string $data to UTF-8, and returns the encoded version. UTF-8 is a standard mechanism used by Unicode for encoding wide character values into a byte stream. UTF-8 is transparent to plain ASCII characters, is self-synchronized (meaning it is possible for a program to figure out where in the bytestream characters start) and can be used with normal string comparison functions for sorting and such. PHP encodes UTF-8 characters in up to four bytes, like this: UTF-8 encoding +------+-------------------------------------+---+ |bytes | | | | | | | | | bits | | | | | | | | representation | | | | | | +------+-------------------------------------+---+ | 1 | | | | | | | | | 7 | | | | | | | | 0bbbbbbb | | | | | | | 2 | | | | | | | | | 11 | | | | | | | | 110bbbbb 10bbbbbb | | | | | | | 3 | | | | | | | | | 16 | | | | | | | | 1110bbbb 10bbbbbb 10bbbbbb | | | | | | | 4 | | | | | | | | | 21 | | | | | | | | 11110bbb 10bbbbbb 10bbbbbb 10bbbbbb | | | | | | +------+-------------------------------------+---+ Each b represents a bit that can be used to store character data. PARAMETERS
o $data - An ISO-8859-1 string. RETURN VALUES
Returns the UTF-8 translation of $data. SEE ALSO
