Many characters in the description are showing up as question marks. How do I fix this? I know it has to do with UTF-8 and ANSI characters but how can I fix this. The characters show up properly in the Access DB they are stored in. The info came from
a CSV, encoded as ANSI which was read by ASP.NET and imported into the Access DB. The web page is UTF-8 and when it reads the description and displays it, I get lots of ?'s that should be bullet points and ticks.
Thanks in advance.!

Try using the HTMLDecode method before writing your text to page.

Doh! I went back and realized it was the export utility that creates the CSV (not under my control) that was causing the question marks to show instead of the correct characters.
