EXCEL - Rendering extended control char codes to symbols

I have a .csv file that I opened in EXCEL and seeing characters codes like "¿½" that should have been rendered to a symbol.  Most of these wierd looking codes are actually supposed to be trademarks so my question is there a way in EXCEL to transpose codes to the actual symbols they represent?  or is this a problem with csv file?

So what are you starting with? Csv first?  What does it look like raw as csv?

So when open this csv file in a text editor like "UltraEdit" this is what it looks like:

Use the hex view of UlraEdit (Ctrl-H) to see what the exact byte content is. If what you pasted above as Excel output is correct, the encoding is (probably) UTF8, and the byte sequence for that character is EF BF BD (but I doubt that is correct - would be U+FFFD = replacement character). The correct glyph for "trade mark" is U+2122, UTF8: E2 84 A2.

You might want to post a excerpt from that CSV containing a few example lines.
