Can i use special characters in alert() JavaScript ?

When i use special characters in a javascript alert() like 'ç' or 'ã', the
message is displayed white a blank square.
How can i avoid this?

thanks in advance.

The browser displays it, a browser has often language extentions.

In this message I see your special characters (I thought that Portugal has
the same codetable 1251 as Holland).

This does not mean that it is showed everywhere in this case.

When I use Polish characters I have to sent the message as Rich text to get
the characters on the other side.

Therefore you should in my opinion point your search on the used browsers
first in my opinion.
