Unhappy little white squares on epub

I apparently not very good at working sigil or calibre but I need a hand without people firing off too much tech-language...please. Anyway, I am having trouble with viewing epub's on my Nook tablet because there are small white squares where punctuation marks are (specifically hyphens, quotation marks, and double spaces). I have REALLY tried to fix it using both calibre and sigil with no results. Any suggestions???

You document fails to declare which 'code page' is being used and is probably using (USA/Windows) ASCII

CP1252 is a common,Western European character set that is frequently used.
In Calibre, there is a Input conversion setting for you to force a different Code Page, otherwise, you need to edit every segments headers

If you set it to UTF-8 it will usually work fine.
