    Oddly the prices don't look correct either. I wonder whether the browser detection script on the server is dysfunctional in some way?

    >>..the prices don't look correct either..

    It shows the last digit correctly, as if the pound sign obliterates the next two characters.
    Or something.

    Under View>Character Encoding>Auto-Detect, mine is set to (Off), so the page displays with Western encoding and works correctly. If I change to Unicode, I get an odd character like you did. I suspect there is a weakness or delay in the auto detection process that gets corrected when you refresh.

    Aha!
    OK - I've set Auto-Detect to off and so far so good.

    I'll put a cheque for [b]

    FWIW I've never had that problem - but my character settings have always been set to Western ISO-8859-1. HTH
