Hi, I just uploaded a site and I have a couple of problems. The copyright symbol on the footer of each page shows up as a diamond with a question mark in it. Then on some other pages, like the FAQs page for example, the bullet symbols are displaying correctly but the em dashes look like a diamond question mark followed by a G with a squiggle under it. What am I doing wrong?
Check it out here:
Also, it seems my footer is breaking onto a second line. It looks fine in Dreamweaver when I preview the page in a browser, but now it looks like it doesn't fit. It might have to do with the copyright symbol, not sure. Please help because I've already uploaded the site and I don't want people to view it messed up like it is, thanks!
Can I assume that you either copied this straight from word or pasted the text into Design View?
If you go into the code view, you will probably see the diamond symbols there too. For the copyright symbols:

For your bullets, you can either modify what you have or change it to an unordered list which is the correct way to display such information.
To change to unordered list, select the bulleted text and in the Dreamweaver menu go Insert > HTML > Text objects > Unordered List.
In code view you should see each line now has <li> around it.
To replace what you have, remove the symbols in code view and replace with •
�Ģ Meals: Four Breakfasts and two Dinners<br />
• Meals: Four Breakfasts and two Dinners<br />
For your em dash:
Insert > HTML > Special Characters > Em-Dash
add — in code view.
As for the footer, it seems to be a basic spacing issue. This can be amended several ways - increasing the width of the div/table cell, decreasing the font size, removing margins/padding etc. Or it could simply be caused by the additional diamond symbols on the copyright.
Hi, the proper code for making a copyright symbol may be found on this page:
Try this: Go to code view and replace the two diamond things with the entity: ©
Try this: In design view, select Insert | HTML | Special Characters | Copyright.
Did you originally cut & paste that from another program into your web page?
