Rogue Chrs on Bookbox in mobi to epub conversion

Hi,
I have converted several mobi to epub and most are fine. A few though have rogue '?' characters inserted when viewed only on my Bookbox.

This is the first sentence as seen on the Bookbox

?George, can?t you sit still for even a minute!? said Julian. ?It?s bad enough to have the train rocking about all .........

This is a cut and paste from the Calibre viewer of the same file extract.

George, cant you sit still for even a minute! said Julian. Its bad enough to have the train rocking about all ...................

The Calibre viewer also display the original mobi in exactly them same way.

It seems to be something to do with spaces but not all and presumably the ? means Bookbox can't interpret a character Calibre has produced in the conversion

Any pointers to help solve this would be appreciated.

Ian
