How to correct encoding problem with Internet Explorer
If you see ?/ followed by a string of Greek characters and a
> where a mathematical symbol should be, e.g. a square root
sign, this is a sure sign that the Encoding has been
set to something other than Western European (typically to
Chinese). To fix this do the following:
- Right click the mouse in the browser window. This will bring
up a popup menu.
- About 2/3 the way down the menu you will see Encoding
listed. Drag the cursor down and select Encoding.
This will bring up a sub-menu.
- In the sub-menu select either:
Western European (Windows)
Western European (ISO)
