Hi all,

 

In some of my html files, I am getting an Â symbol at the end of a few words. There does not seem to be a pattern, and I don't see anything in the code. The weirder issue is that I don't see it on my screen, but my colleague does on hers. It is never at the start of a word, only at the end. She does have a different version of Dreamweaver from me, but I've tried looking at it in multiple browsers, pasting it into other programs, and I never see the symbol.

 

Does anyone know what might be causing this and how to fix it?

You need make sure the UTF charset is declared

in HTML5 <meta charset="UTF-8">

Old HTML 4: <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8"> 

Post a link to the page for more help, are you using any dynamic data/ retrieving information from a database?

It could be caused by an undeclared UTF char-set as Paul said.  But if it's not that, we need more info. 

  • Where exactly does your colleague see the character -- Code, Live or Design view?
  • Which versions of DW do you each have?
  • Which operating systems do you each have?
  • What's the URL to your online page?

Oddly enough, my wife had that problem yesterday with ther email app, Thunderbird. We rebooted it and that fixed it.
