Which encoded meta charset is your document using?  It should be near the top of your code, under the <title> tag.

UTF-8 is supported by most languages and causes the least problems.

Problems ensue when you mix encoding types like UTF-8 with ISO-Latin entities.

 

Also validate code and fix any reported errors.

This is usually the behavior when your system has a corrupted font on it. Have you recently added any new fonts to your system? If so, I would start there and remove those fonts and see if things return to normal.

Use a more suitable doctype and the universal character set like this:

 

<!doctype html>
<html lang="fr">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Document Title</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

 

Nobody uses ISO Latin text on web pages anymore.

  1. Is only in Dreamweaver Design View that you see the weird characters? 
  2. Have you tried in a browser?

I think we're spinning our wheels here.  The OP is not understanding anything we've said.
