Strange Characters in upper left corner with Mozilla/Firefox

In Mozilla or Firefox strange a few strange characters appear in the upper left corner of the Web page (not in other browsers). I have been asked to problem solve by a coworker. The code is pretty strange (done in Dreamweaver I believe). I've fixed most of the big errors to see if that would fix the problem. It did not. I got rid of the styles to see if that was the problem. It was not.

So I am turning to the experts here. Remember, it only appears in Mozilla/Firefox browsers.  

Here is an example page: http://reynoldscenter.org/about.html

Thanks.

I have seen this sort of thing happen when the HTML is saved in Notepad or some other editor using the wrong charset.  The charset on the page is set to utf-8 so that is what it should be set to when saved.  Unfortunately these characters are not always visisble in all editors either, but if they are visible in notepad then they should be removed.

I looked at the html in Notepad and didn't find anything that would indicate the strange characters. I then changed the charset to a couple different ones (Latin 1, Latin 9 and the one iangough7 suggested). None got rid of the characters.

You will have to try opening the page in Wordpad or some other text editor to remove these characters.
