    I am not sure if you can see but it looks like this...

    It does thing in different numbers too. Thats just the one that I recently got, I usually get it on either Wikipedia or Youtube. I think it has something to Asian lettering because on Wikipedia its where the Asian Lettering is and I was watching a Japanese guitar video today and they were on it.

    I'm getting it, too, but usually with different characters in the box.


    I think it's just Firefox 3's way of telling you there's an unreadable character there.

    That's weird, I can't see it at all and I'm using Firefox 3. [​IMG]

    Tried copy pasting it, but it's just a line of blank.

    I think it's just Firefox's way of displaying an unknown character, as stated before. I think in IE7, it's just weird rectangular boxes instead. I get these weird symbols whenever I've typed out a Chinese character it doesn't recognise.

    Ahh, My suspicions were correct. It did have something to do with languages that the computer can't understand. Thanks guys!
