Special Character And Extra Spaces - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Hi All, This may be a simple problem to fix (i hope) but my searching has found nothing. When i publish doents from word to contribute i get extra gibberish in the place of extra spaces and special characters like dash(?). extra space = dash = ?? Hopefully theres a setting i'm missing that will fix the problem. I am working with big doents that contain garphics so exporting to txt format isn't an option. Thanks in advance for the help. Cheers David...

    I have now worked out the it is the Auto-Formatting in word that is causing the
    head aches. The dash's can be fixed with a simple find an replace but the
    white space is still a major problem.

    Any thoughts?

    After further experimentation and a close fix i have found the the pages look
    fine with a html extension but contain the gibberish when they have a cfm
    extension.

    Obviously when the files go through the coldfusion server something happens.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
