"Need Help with Forums" page not showing symbols correctly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was just browsing through this page and noticed that all "special symbols" show up as a box, rather than the symbol. For example:
        1024�768

    (Which should read 1024x768.)

    I'm using IE7 on Windows Vista, so I wouldn't expect such a problem?

  • Interesting, I hadn't noticed that. I'm guessing that these are copy/pasted characters from Word (such as SmartQuotes). I'll make sure a bug gets recorded for this.

    Thanks for the kudos, Arnie! :)
