Strange thing with this simple HTML

Hi all...

I have a problem that I don't know why is happening...

I have this HTML code:

<html>
<body>
++li-
</body>
</html>

I see that code in my browser (IE 5.50.4807.2300) as a square block.. it seems browser is interpreting it as an ASCII character. If I write ++l- or +li- I don't see anything.

It seems any combination of +anychar- has problems...

Who can explain me this? or is Matrix inside my computer?

Well it just displays ++li- when I drop it in a page. using IE 5.5 on a W2K box.

So, let's see if we can narrow it down:

What browser and version are you using?
what OS and computer?
What language preference do you have set?
Do you have non-standard fonts set as the default?
Does it just happen whe it is aloe on the page or does it also happen when you put it into another page?

Finally.. it was problem of charset... my IE has Auto-Select but I don't know why it selected other encoding.... I used the corresponding META tag to force ISO-8859-1 and it worked.

Thanks

B?  For a preliminary request for more information?  Sorry if I offended you, I was just trying to help.  A delete would have been better. :^(
