What you're looking at here is commonly known as a character-encoding collision.  The situation arises because someone used an ASCII file, but tried to declare it to be UTF-8, or vice-versa.  Here is an explanation.

The goal to avoid these collisions is to make sure you've got consistent encodings, including your text editor, your HTML form input fields, your data base and your script outputs.
