Joomla, No unicode characters im module titles

Hello Experts,
I purchased from virtuemarttemplates.net template for my site, but unfortunately found some problems that makes me crazy.

My site is RTL (Hebrew) web site, i made a modification in CSS so right now it looks absolutely RTL, BUT, When I'm adding new modules and giving them English title names, front end shows them correctly, but when I'm adding Hebrew title names to the module it not shown at all on front page.
 I checked DB and found that if I'm adding ENG module name, system adds it to DB, when adding HE name nothing happens. If i mix Hebrew AND English in title, system adds title to DB but shows only ENG characters on front page.

DB collation is utf-8 so there is no problem with DB. But PHP files as i see not collated to UTF-8 (Is it problem?)
I can't give a link to the site cause it local on my mamp.
Please Please HELP!!!

Hello Josef,
We found the problem. It was scrip js/Myriad_Pro_400.font.js
Miriad not supports Hebrew.

Thank you.

There may be many reasons why your site isn't displaying Unicode characters correctly and without having access to your site is almost impossible to find the problem.
The most common mistake is that the templates are coded in iso-8859-1 rather than UTF-8 even if they are displaying UTF-8 to the META tag, so I suggest to start there.

In what files should i start checking?
As explained, only module names and VM product names can't be displayed in unicode.

Check the VM templates or the VM modules if they are encoded in Unicode. If you are using Dreamweaver, open the file there and press Ctrl+J and look into "Title/Encoding" and check if the Encoding says Unicode UTF-8 and not Western.

Check even the PHP files as well. But these are the most common mistakes. I really need to see your site to find the root of your problem.
