Question invalid e-mail address


„OS¤ RH7©1
ok ©©© when I type in my e-mail address in some wb sites it says it's a invaild e-mail address, I think the problem is with the @ charactor© I think that because if I view this post in linux it looks normal, but if I view this post in windows some of the charactors are all wrong©

any ideas??

Actually not sure if it's showing up to anyone else, but I've noticed in your posts here that your (periods) show up as © copyright chracters. Might actually be something wrong with your keyboard layout unless your meaning to put © as periods ?
