    When I upload my file my degree symbol (°) turns into a question mark as well as my registered ® symbol. Is there a line of code I need in my html? or something I need to tell my web host to do differently to get these symbols to look right on my page?

    Many symbols require HTML codes in order to be properly displayed in a browser. I found the following guide that may help you:

    HTML Accent Entity Codes

    For example, instead of the registered symbol, you would enter "®" (without the double quotation marks) and the code would be displayed as a symbol.

    cpanel still translates wrong or am I not doing it right?

    'Carbide Uniflute&reg Countersink' becomes Carbide Uniflute? Countersink instead of Carbide Uniflute®
    I've tried embedding the &reg like above and also the &#174

    This may be a character encoding issue. Make sure the character encoding the file is saved in and the character encoding specified in the file's HTML code are consistent and support those characters.

    In some programs, when you save a file, in the "save" window where you can type a file name and select a file type, sometimes you can also specify a character encoding.

    In my experience, the character encoding "UTF-8" works best since it supports the widest variety of characters and is supported by essentially all modern web browsers.

    You may want to contact your hosting provider for further assistance with this issue, since they have access to your website's files and can more readily determine the cause of this issue.
