Strange Symbols With Html Editor

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a question about the HTML editor that is available in the file manager portion of cpanel. I used it to make some changes to one of my pages and noticed that it inserted a strange character (^A) between several sentences. I tried to edit them out, but they reappeared when I viewed my page. Does anyone know what these are and how to delete them? My page with this problem is located at Bio page. Thank you very much for your help.

I looked at your source code and didn't see those symbols.

 

You might want to consider putting some returns in your code to split it up a bit and keep it on one page. It would make it alot easier to edit, but that's up to you - I don't normally have to look at it. :D

Thanks for looking, bellringr. I can't see it in the source code, either, only on the web page. They started appearing after I edited in the HTML editor and then saved. There are 2 of these symbols in the 1st paragraph. 5th line, and one in the 2nd paragraph, 6th line. Do you see them or am I going crazy? :D I deleted and re-typed the words around the symbols but they were still on the web page. Any help would be appreciated.

I see them on the web page but they don't appear in the source.

 

Suggestion, select to edit the file, not HTML-Edit the file. Locate where it shows on the web page, retype the content around those characters and then save the file. I've not seen this happen before.

I downloaded your source, removed the funny symbols, added a doctype, and voila' ...

By the way, I chose the HTML 4.0 "loose" doctype since you've used <font> tags in your source...

Thanks to everyone that helped with this problem. I went back to the source code and edited the text in Notepad, then saved and reloaded it. This solved the problem. It appears that something weird happened with the HTML editor when I made the earlier changes. Thanks again for your input.
