    Hi Guys,

    I'm in need of help, on a website I'm creating there is a section of the page which has Japanese symbols although there is nothing in the code that explains why its there.

    Here's the page, view the source and let me know if you can tell why.

    Thanks

    It's Chinese.

    I can see the characters at the bottom of your source file if I select 'view source' on your page. Are you sure you haven't accidentally pasted this from somewhere?

    I didn't actually check my source like that, but yeah it does show up.
    However, it doesn't show up in my editor, so I'm at a loss to why its there.

    What happens if you upload your code to your website again?

    Does it overwrite this?

    If so, then it's possible someone else has hacked your source on the site, and your password is compromised.

    If you upload and the text is still there, perhaps you have some invisible characters at the bottom of the source file.

    I've updated it many times and it doesn't go away. It's unlikely it's been hacked, it's only been up a few days.

    There's nothing in the HTML out of the ordinary at all in my editor.

    ----------

    I think I've figured it out. If you look at the source on the other pages you can see analytic code. I think its that that has messed up somehow.

    the only confusing bit is its from my web host, but I didn't put it there.

    Thanks for your help anyway.
