Which is the correct translation? with or without the descender?

The fact is, you can view it correctly only by selecting the Central European Windows-1250 encoding, in this case.
That is why some people just drop the diacritical mark. It is common practice, and perfectly intelligible to any Romanian native, however it is not correct.
So, if you want the correct translation, use the "ţ" with Central European or with Unicode.
