#2 What browser are you using, Redneck Jim? Apparently this matters for figuring out what happened.

#3 In Spanish, diacritical marks are used with vowels and the N. Some browsers cannot recognize the diacritical marks and uses this symbol in its place

#4 One of the nice things about Rantburg is that there's always someone who knows the answer. Thank you for explaining, try this. :-)

#5 What is this symbol? �
Normally I have seen it when the article is submitted in an unusual character set, say 'Cyrillic (ISO-8859-5)', and the browser gets confused.
My Firefox is set on 'Western (ISO-8859-1)" and it doesn't like the "Ae" character... IIRC, I switched to this setting some time ago when some Rantburg articles on the Mexican Drug War looked like cypher-text...

#6 I routinely edit out those characters in place and proper names since they are unnecessary. I didn't catch that one until RJ pointed it out.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
