Weird text characters appearing in posts (6 posts)

    I've recently moved to a new server and weird text characters are showing up in posts which weren't there on the old server: For example http://www.newcastle-online.com/?p=271

    Lots of “ and �

    Is this a WordPress issue or a server issue?

    How can I cut those out to display proper characters such as " symbols for quotations and ' for commas.

    Thanks

    maybe i'm missing something, but i don't see any of that on the page you've linked...but there are lots of errors on the page that need to be corrected...

    Yeah I uploaded a plugin to replace and find, that doesn't solve the problem though.

    What other errors are you seeing?

    Oh that, yeah someone else pointed that out to me earlier on. One for the weekend that :)

    Any idea what could be causing the character quirks?

    Cheers
