php cURL returned character set

when i view a particular web page via a browser, the
one-fourth character shows as ¼  (displays as a fraction character)

when i scrape the same page and display,
it's converted to ¿    which appears in my browser as a black diamond with a white ?

is there an option for cURL not to translate character sets?

thanks

Are you displaying the data in the same character set as the original page?

thanks for the trigger to re-look at that (there were two doc-type   tags!)
