This is normal display but when opened as a web page it appears as in the attached file with many of the letters converted to little pictures. How can this be corrected?

Open your charctermap and look through the fonts you have installed, alternatively, tivdok your encoding setting on your site potentially you are specifying a different encoding or a font.
when copying and pasting, the encoding in the source is different from the destination.

Not quite sure what is going on there but it is only the Capital letters that are corrupted.

Is it only web pages that are corrupted or other non web page documents corrupted such as Word or Notepad?

I had something like this happen one time and it ended up being blown capacitors on the motherboard. I know that's kind of a long shot, but you may want to check your motherboard and/or video card if you have one. I was getting weird characters and colors on screen just like that.

I found that it only happens in Chrome and not in Firefox.

I submitted the samples to myfonts.com but their whatthefont program didn't identify it.

I think that removing and reinstalling Chrome would probably be the best solution. However, since I don't have the problem in Firefox and I don't want to redo Chrome at this time, I'll just ignore the problem for now
