Word Web Page Formatting...
I have compiled a Word document from test reading materials and saved them as a web page within Word. It is to be displayed in a frame(50/50) alongside an online test for our Education Dept.
The page displays fine when only viewing the single document without a frame. When it is in a frame.... questions marks are being added here and there. Mostly in places of a bullet or an apostrphe. Several places tab spaces are filled with question marks and sometimes a line is filled with them. Ooo... I just found a spot with Wingdings font... but it isn't replacing the original text. There are just additional characters.
I tried searching to no avail. I know this has to be an issue for other people. Is there anyway around it?

sounds like and encoding issue ... try checking your encoding detection setting under IE - view, encoding and see if selecting a diff method helps. Failing that you'll need to go through the page and replace all the characters with entity names.

Yep... The page was being displayed in UTF-8. I thank you kindly.
