    Hey all, I wonder if any of you can see this by any chance "❤" it's a heart, but my PC just displays it either as a square box, or a "2764" kinda box, I just wondered what language pack/what files i'd need to install to see it? as it'd be kinda useful to be able to see things properly haha, thank you for your help ;D

    Install East Asian languages?

    I also have my Language for non-Unicode programs setting on Japanese, so I can see that heart or any other types of symbols fine. If I set it back to English, I won't be able to read it and have the same square box problem.

    Once you installed, restarted etc, come back here and check if you can see it. If not, try messing about with the Character Encoding settings. Assuming you are on Firefox, then it's View, Character Encoding.
