Right-click anywhere on iExplore white screen > Select Encoding > Mark 'Auto-Select'

Or better 'Unicode (UTF-8)'

Hope this helps!

Got this far and it keeps the box and not accenting.  I even had it so that the little black dot was in front of the unicode but then it went away.

Is auto-select enabled or disabled?
Can you provide me iExplorer version and site link?

Thank you in advance :)

auto select is disabled.
There is no site link.  Its a menu board and the site is local to that machine.
IE Version 7.0.5730.13

Try including this header on the html code
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

And mark "Auto Select"
