Page coming up garbled?

P: n/a
I maintain an academic website called "The Collegiate Way" at:

http://collegiateway.org

A colleague in the UK who is using IE6 tells me that the site keeps
coming up with jumbled characters. I've checked it in the US on
multiple machines and it seems fine, but this problem persists for
him. It may be some misconfiguration in his system, but I'd certainly
like to know if it is more general. If anyone in the UK (or elsewhere)
would be kind enough to pull up the page and let me know if there are
any display problems I'd be grateful.

Many thanks.

Looks ok here, some other advice: don't let a browser resize images, use
a graphics editor to resize them, and don't use the jpeg format for
computer drawing type images such as the crests on your index page.

Did he mean the Chinese version (zh)? One requires to have appropriate
fontfaces installed for Chinese writing to display correctly.

The Chinese version (zh) of the home page:

has some well-formedness errors which cause problems:

Having checked two or three pages, it seems to render OK in IE6 except
for "& middot ;" which is replaced by a small 'square' (although not a
problem in Opera).

regards.
