    With the templatemonster template you are using there isn't anyway we can help. You or someone has modified some code somewhere and left a php code ascrew.

    I know this template and it is not the fresh install nature to do this so I would suggest replacing tampered files with a new unaltered by you one.

    Play with it long enough and you will break it.

    Look in the Tutorials and FAQs regarding the UTF-8 encoding; your configure.php file and your database don't agree on the encodings.

    Did you manually enter names & descriptions?

    or

    Did you copy names & descriptions from another program?

    It is usually encoding issue, especially when copying and pasting from another program or importing in bulk.

    Is your data setup for UTF8?

    I looked at that post and checked configure.php , looks like that:

    // The next 2 "defines" are for SQL cache support.
    // For SQL_CACHE_METHOD, you can select from: none, database, or file
    // If you choose "file", then you need to set the DIR_FS_SQL_CACHE to a directory where your apache
    // or webserver user has write privileges (chmod 666 or 777). We recommend using the "cache" folder inside the Zen Cart folder
    // ie: /path/to/your/webspace/public_html/zen/cache -- leave no trailing slash
    define('SQL_CACHE_METHOD', 'none');
    define('DIR_FS_SQL_CACHE', '/home/unigall/ftp/cache');

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf-8');

    It isn't your charset it is just that one sub catagorie. find it and edit the name and discription or delete it.
