Hi Guys. Just recently I have been having a problem with strange fonts within the body of my emails from certain correspondents. (not all)

Straightforward signs are showing up as somethething like A># or £’ and numbers are then missing or show up as squares. The other is that the ' will not translate and comes as a string of hieroglyphics. I have tried downloading the compatibility prog for Office 2010 etc and checked my keyboard and language settings to no avail.

I am running Windows XP Pro sp3 with Office 2003 and picking up my emails thru Outlook Express.

Apologies for probably being dense but this has me baffled.
