Pound sign icon appearing

In a Dreamweaver cs6 page text I am getting some small question mark icons appearing.

These appear where there is £ sign.

Any ideas how I can avoid these question Mark icons appearing please?


Many thanks

John

&pound;

i cant say where the ? characters come from, but to show the pound symbol, you should use:

&pound;




for example:

<td class="main">UK &pound;&nbsp;9250&nbsp; </td>

Thanks Jason
I can use that but lots of records are already in the table and mySql does not seem to have a find and replace like access has.

I expect it will be a copy column into Excel
Find and replace
Then copy colum and paste back into Mysql column.

find and replace can be done with the SQL REPLACE() command:

replace.html
