    I typed text for an email into the editor. I did not copy from word. the text looks fine, the html looks fine, but when the email is sent, a special character is inserted in different places. below is a partial copy of the email:

    The 2008 Winter Basketball Season registration is now open! Go to the PYSA

    How do I remove this?

    Hi Susan,

    Having Â's around means that you probably do not save the file with the correct encoding - or, alternatively, you save it in one encoding, but display on a page with a different encoding. Our suggestion is to check and make sure all is saved with the same encoding.

    Please, try the suggestions provided in the following help article:
    Appearance of odd characters after saving RadEditor's content in Database.

    You can save the ascx file with Unicode encoding using Visual Studio -> File -> Save <PageName> As -> Click on the bottom arrow dropdown button next to the Save button -> choose Save with Encoding -> choose Unicode (UTF-8 with signature).

    You have to also set <globalization fileEncoding="UTF-8"/> in your web.config file.

    Here are some links that discuss [file] encoding.
