    They are supposed to work fine. You shouldn't need anything special. Here, I created a form and the look fine:

    Is the same problem happen when you submit the form on the JotForm URL?

    http://www.jotform.com/form/2962730945

     

    Because someone else had a similar problem and it was caused by the html language encoding

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/7727-Problem-of-charset-#6

    "The problem was that your form html encoded "charset = utf-8" was inserted into a php file without encoding or encoded charset = windows-1252 " by default."
