When viewing an HTML document, such as a report, strange characters may be displayed.
A web browser can be configured to use different character encoding when rendering a page. For example, to configure Internet Explorer 7:
Open Internet Explorer > Page > Encoding > More > Unicode (UTF-8)
If an immediate change isn't apparent, restart Internet Explorer. If you're viewing a report through Process Navigator's browser, restart Process Navigator.
When naming a Process Navigator element by editing the shape's text directly, Visio may use characters that it deems suitable. For example, opening and closing double-quotes will used in place of generic double-quotes. If the element was named through its Properties dialog, generic double-quotes would be used.
Applies to:
  • Internet Explorer
