Hi James

Since you moved to your new server, you have the dreaded character problem occurring on some pages.

Have a look at my review "Expensive beer" on this page...

notice the "I gave her a crisp 20 note"

If you are using SQL server - this could be a collation setting or it could be a encoding setting in IIS.

Yes, this is annoying - it's to do with how the data was imported, rather than the settings of the database as it is now - so any newly entered data is fine.

At the moment I'm manually fixing a batch each day, which is laborious but means I can also pick up other formatting glitches along the way.

I'm sure there's a more efficient way of doing a bulk find and replace but I haven't had time to work that out yet.
