    Lately, I get messages that look like a small square with an A inside. Gobbledeegook. I tried to copy and paste a bit on this page but pasting it made it turn into ordinary text.
    How can I fix it. Make and instructions step by step. I'm not a tech head.
    Thanks guys

    Hello and welcome.

    -Which version of OS X?
    -Where is the text copied from and where are you pasting it?

    Normally, that icon means the font you are using is either not installed, corrupted, or has been changed.

    Hi. This just happens when I click on some sites or open some emails. I think it is something to do with the text they are using.
