Bad Chars Showing Up - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Whenever I edit a template and run it across the board, it seems to change my content and add weird chars, like changing single quotes to an "O" with a sideways 's' above it and changes EM dashes to "N" with a sideways "s" above it. It also seems to add content into editable areas where it shouldn't. Like I delete a section (in between the editable areas) and then when I update a template, it RE-adds that generic text and I have to go in again and delete it. What's going on?

    Default Bad Chars Showing Up

    Whenever I edit a template and run it across the board, it seems to change my content and add weird chars, like changing single quotes to an "O" with a sideways 's' above it and changes EM dashes to "N" with a sideways "s" above it.

    It also seems to add content into editable areas where it shouldn't. Like I delete a section (in between the editable areas) and then when I update a template, it RE-adds that generic text and I have to go in again and delete it.

    What's going on? I am using DW MX on Win 2000.

    An example URL is provided. I tried to attach a .dwt, but an error came up saying it wasn't an allowed format? Macromedia forum and it isn't allowed to upload a DW template? Weird :)

    The:

    There is a size limit on attachments. It's likely that's what trapped you.
    In fact attachments at all are discouraged in the Forum posting guidelines.

    The best way to proceed is as you have done already, i.e., post a URI to a
    file that you have uploaded.

    But what I would really need to see would be the template file itself.
    Could you please upload that and post its URI? Also, please tell me a) what
    you mean by this - run it across the board, b) what changes you try and
    where, and c) what happens as a result?
