What does that little question mark in the black diamond mean?
It's a placeholder for unknown characters. It usually happens when a page's headers say that one character encoding is supposed to be there, but a different encoding was used in the actual text.
Its official Unicode name is "replacement character", FFFD.
So basically it's the web developer's fault not my computer's?
Yep. Some browsers will try to guess the right character set in spite of the headers, but Safari will normally try to go by the book. You can play with the View->Text Encoding menu in Safari to figure out what it's really supposed to be. The most common mismatch is between ISO-8859-1 (aka Latin-1) and UTF-8, but there all kinds of possibilities.
give me a link, i can try opera/firefox for you.
That's correct. Although I wish the character looked a little bit, well, more subdued. Say the same weight as Lucida Grande characters. It's quite disctracting if you get a page full of 'em.
Shows up fine for me in Safari:
its a sup(TM), both opera and firefox display them well.
PS, on my machine, safari display them well too. u might want to adjust your auto detec encoding of ur browser.
Alright fixed it. I had a style sheet installed to block myspace ads, apparently that messed it up. On well I'll just have to put up with the screaming ads
safari's adblock stuff does have problems here and there.
