Where are these wierd characters coming from?

Head out to http://loosecannonfitness.com/mobile/index.php and look at the footer. I've got a screenshot attached just so we can be certain we're looking at the same thing...

Where are those random characters coming from? Rather than...

You see the screenshot that I have attached. Where am I blowing it?

I can tell you it definitely has to do with the "footer" class. Remove that class and those funky characters go away. You also lose your text decoration and font color but that should easily be fixable.

I would remove the "footer" class from each of the <a> elements inside the <div class="footer_text"> element and just add the following to your CSS.
.footer_text a {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: White;
    font-size: 10pt;

Open in new window

That way any <a> element inside that div will have the correct style applied and you will avoid whatever CSS collision you're dealing with.

They're not weird characters - they part of a background image. Look at the CSS for your footer class (line 175 of your stylesheet)

background-image: url("../images/footer_1600.jpg");

You have assigned the footer class to every one of your A tags inside the footer

The only thing about EE that's in any way shape or form a bit of a downer is moments like these when the level of stupidity that was deployed in overlooking something very obvious is so readily apparent.
