The title says it all - almost. This is outlook 2007 in W7. I am just typing away at a message and out of the blue the non alphanumeric characters switch to a different appearance. for example " turns into an E with a circumflex (I think that is the right term) on top, ' becomes an e with a circumflex and so on. Any idea what triggers this or more importantly is there an easy way to switch back? Currently I have to exit Outlook and restart it. This does not happen in any other program, or affect any other program when it happens in outlook.
