Strange Code Replaces Numbers

Hello,

When I import a .PDF file into calibre numbers are replace by strange symbols. The symbols are boxes in which are contained strange characters. Attached is a snapshot of what these symbols look like. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before and, if so, what causes this anomaly and is there a fix for it?

could be many things, but my guess is missing characters in the font you have/are using

Are you sure that there are not 4 digits arranged in a square?
34
56

Those would be a UTF character code

Another possibility is those were tint images that are now missing
