Extended Font Characters Garbled in "Favorites/Bookmarks"

  1. MS IE, Windows XP Media Edition 2004 last update 1/14/09

    I understand the following characters cannot appear in a Favorites title ( /
    \ : * < > |) but why are most extended font characters transposed into an
    underscore or a group of unintelligible characters? Even though I have
    chosen the most basic common fonts, Arial, Lucida Sans, Verdana, MS Sans
    Serif, etc., when customizing the appearance of Windows, all the extended
    font characters are changed after adding a URL or Website title with them.
    My fonts are set for Western, Latin, and Unicode. Here are examples of
    extended characters that are modified by IE, © ® ½ ° ‣ ∞ ™ · †. These
    characters are used in the English language. Is there something I must
    change or alter to have them appear as used?

    Thank you, MaryBeth
