The webpage in question, when it resides locally on my computer, displays nicely. However, when it resides on my website, it does not display properly in Firefox, IE and Chrome. I called the hosting company and they too see the same thing I do using the same 3 browsers.

Actually the Hebrew itself displays fine, however wrapped around each line of Hebrew text are two or three lines of high-order characters.

You can see what I mean in the attached screenshots:

The first few lines of HTML code are as follows:
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<html lang="he">  
<body dir="rtl">
<center><font face="David" size="2">ספר</font></cente<wbr ></wbr>r>
<b><center><font face="David" size="7">קן קולמוס</font></center></b><wbr ></wbr>
<center><font face="David" size="1"></font></center>
<b><center><font face="David" size="4">מחקרים ועיונים בסוגיות הש'ס</font></center></b>

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
