Forge question

In my present work on Spurgeons Expository Notes, when I have exported a module and bring it up into MS Word, I am running across things with a question mark inside a box, such as this:
even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.�
It has to do with things like a -- or a " or things of that kind (if I have made sense)
It is a slow, tedious work (for an old man anyway) but I have begun the process of bringing the work into one module. Nowhere else have I found the work where it is all combined into one page - no one has done it. So, I am planning to proceed with my plans and put it all together. If I live to be 116 maybe I will get it done - give or take 3 or 4 months. :)
Has anyone else ever run across a problem with the question mark in a box after exporting to MS Word? If so, is there a way I can export to MS Word without such? I am having to go back and put all the </p> and $$ in order to eventually bring it into Forge and zapping it all back into SwordSearcher. Is there a better and/or a faster way to do the work that you might suggest?

Thanks,
Regie

That symbol usually means that somewhere along the lines, a Unicode character was incorrectly encoded or decoded. There is no easy solution. You usually have to start with the source, assuming the source is properly encoded.

Thanks much. I have found a better way to do the work. At the following link, there are a lot of works by Spurgeon and a lot of others. I downloaded the PDF files of Spurgeon and it is a lot easier to go through all the various pages and just add to the work as I go and it is a lot neater too, especially when I use the style and format cleaner: https://www.grace-ebooks.com/library/index.php
