I have a sandbox site I am developing at http://www.haaswebdesign.com/demo/RedTrailer2.  If you expand the menu on teh left, you'll see funny characters.  IE seems to show squares, while Chrome shows diamond with question mark inside and FF shows dowble greater-than symbol.
I cannot determine where these characters are coming from.  The list style is set to none, and the charset is set to UTF-8.  I COPied/pasted the code to Notepad++ to look for extraneous characters, but cannot find any.  Any idea where they are coming from?

Hi,

In screen.css (line 304) you have the following:
#cssmenu ul ul a:before {
  content: '¿';
  position: absolute;
  left: 10px;
  color: #e94f31;
}

Open in new window

The symbol seems to be coming from whatever is between those quotes in "content" line.
