The problem occurs on a number of sites where the £ (GBP) currency symbol is used in server generated pages. For example DHLs tarif and transit search facility. The results returned are rendered with ?? marks, e.g. £40.40 became ??40. Manually setting the encoding (in this case to Unicode) appears to remove the problem. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set encoding to (Autodetect->Universal) Western ISO-8559-1 (default). 2. Visit UK shop website and do a search which returns prices as part of the results (e.g. DHL.co.uk, Tariff and Transit). 3. Results often returned as ?? instead of £ Actual Results: Displayed for example ??40 Expected Results: Should have displayed the correct price and symbols: £40.40 This problem does occasionally disappear if I do a full-restart of the browser. Also if I change the character encoding.
