Everything I see is normal. Is it predictable? Always in the same places? If so, then you may be missing a font. What's your character encoding for your browser? It does appear localized though. Have you tried deleting your cookies and flushing your cache?

As I said, check your character encoding in your browser. The theme is changing it to Unicode UTF=8. Switch it to Western (ISO-8859-1) and the image is correct.

Look in includes/language/lang-english.php and see what this is set to:

define("_CHARSET","ISO-8859-1");

Well, the example given is not php-nuke, it is an installation of phpbb stand-alone.

Can you give us a Nuke Example?

As for your phpbb forum, check:
languages/lang_english/lang_main.php for encodings.

It should say:
Code:
$lang['ENCODING'] = "iso-8859-1";


As for phpMyAdmin, what exactly are you referring to?

If you are using the latest version of MySQL, you may find your database tables are utf8 encoded, but the issue at hand is presentation data that is being pushed by your defined OUTPUT character set (versus database character set, which is different).

Okay... Let's slow down a tad to help clear things up.

First.... The example link that you provided is NOT PHP-Nuke. It is phpbb which is an entirely different animal altogether.

The solution I provided was for phpbb AND NOT PHP-Nuke. That is where you define the character set for phpbb.

As for your Nuke 7.7 Patched 3.0 domain:
1) Please provide a link to the domain so we can see what you are talking about and determine if there is a problem with character set encoding for that domain.
2) What is the name of the module in question where this problem occurs in PHP-Nuke?
3) Where exactly in the admin block do the ? marks show up?
3A) If possible, take a screen shot of the admin block (Hit ALT-PRINT SCRN on your keyboard), then "paste" the image into "Paint" or some other image editor and crop it (so we only see the admin block itself) and save it as a .gif file (like admin.gif). Then upload the admin.gif to your server..... and finally post the link (of where the admin.gif file is) as an image here so we can take a look at it (using the "Img" function) That might help us actually see what you are seeing.

Thanks
Steph

Everything there is normal IF there is a different definition for the bullet or if the bullet definition beyond the restrictions of the encoding/character set.

Check the bullets and I think that you will find that they are not properly defined somewhere or are illegal characters.

The Compliant version of /blocks/block-Administration.php should be:
Code:
