where do you get this? in your browser?

this is either a client problem using the wrong character set
or your server does send the wrong charset in the HTTP header and there is no DOCTYPE or META tag in the page itself

Hi,

For this kind of bug, try to check your regional settings , in which region it is setted !, it also depends on the regional settings on your PC (Server).

the regional settings may be inspected *after* we know what is in DOCTYPE and/or META tag
(assuming that you're using a standard-conform browser, somehow)
