Uh...Download the Non-English Mod in the Resource Center...This will support special characters.

Also, the way to add sub-categories with multiple words is the following:

Code:
ReadmeFile/DoesHave_Answers

ReadmeFile = Category
DoesHave_Answers = Sub Category

The problems you are experiencing are twofold:

1) You are not using the correct category/subcategory format.

2) You are using special characters, which regular links does not support. You need to download and use the Non-English Mod to support special characters.

Uh, you are confused...

You can add sub-categories like I provided WITHOUT the Non-English Mod.

However, with the Non-English Mod, it will allow you to add special characters into your categories.

Get it? Got it? Good.
