Hi,

Posting in WebmasterWorld after a long time!

While testing a page in Firefox 3 I noticed that characters like hyphens (–), bullets (•) are appearing as pipe sign (). However, the page is looking ok in the older versions of Firefox or IE.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Are you defining a charset, and if so, which one?

And is your data coming from a database?

yes, we are using charset=iso-8859-1 and the page is not fetching data from database.
