If you get odd characters when using “email this page”

The “email this page” features uses the UTF-8 character set.

If you are using Outlook Express, and the emails that are sent have question marks instead of quotation marks or hypens, it may be set to a different character set. To change it:

Be sure you’re in the main menu - i.e., don’t have any messages open. You should have “Inbox” clicked on the left listing.

Go to Tools / Options / Send / International Settings

Change the drop down menu selection to Unicode UTF-8
