  Old  Dreamweaver CS5 Template

Iíve created a Dreamweaver CS5 template. The template displays perfectly. However, when I use the template to make another page thereís a problem with the way some of the links on the new page display. On a sidebar, I have a list of links that point to specific anchors on the target page. Each of the links displays with a question mark enclosed in a diamond shape. The links work perfectly, but how do I get rid of those ugly questions marks at the ends of the links? All those ugly question marks totally ruin the page. Can anybody help? Thanks

Click by the link in design view, and then go into code view. You'll see something like this

Code:
<a href="url">Something here</a>
Change "Something here" to what you want your link to say. If it does not look like that at all, please post the code.

I would certainly recommend, if you haven't already, to learn at least the basics of HTML before using Dreamweaver (I did not for a long period, and it never went well). If you know a bit HTML you'll understand most of the code Dreamweaver generates and understand where it screwed up.

Thanks Eirik-M. Looking at the code, I noticed that whenever I used a hyphen (-) between the link and the text that follows, Dreamweaver inserted its own symbol. When I replace the hyphen with : then it works. I suppose DW just doesn't like hyphens. Go figure???

It could be that you have to write the unicodes. It failed in Chrome when I tried to directly write an em dash (long hyphen) in code. Try replacing "-" with
the codes on this page.

If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.
