    What's this thing between the "o" and "d"? (see attachment)

    I know it's supposed to be an apostrophe, but why does the thing show up instead?

    What are you using to view the site? That's quite the interesting layout... It doesn't look anything like what I see using Firefox or Safari.

    What browser are you using, and in what encoding?

    I'm using Firefox and see this apostrophe correctly if I set the encoding to IS0-8859-1, but get the diamond if I set the encoding to UTF-8.

    Look in View menu -> Text encoding.

    And set the default in Safari Preferences -> Appearance -> Default encoding.

    Seen it before, but I have no idea what it is. Also curious...

    Odd then, since that's the same as ISO-8859-1, which displays it ok in Firefox - albeit on a Windows PC.

    it's an browser/page encoding issue that someone brought up before. I think I fixed it.
