took a look.

- your template outputs a blank line at top of html source output. Not sure if that can affect something but doubt it.

- i could paste successfully an arab word in interests field on my local install (once i set it to utf8).
- and could see that this gets echoed correctly in field edit, but not after saving in profile and when editing again.

As it's joomla 1.5 it should be utf8 by default.

However my guess is that your database collation for at least CB fields (jos_comprofiler) is not utf8. Maybe utf8 is not the default mode of your database ?
