Commas Changing to Question Marks Mobi

Hi I have a riddle I quite often find that after converting a file to Mobi in Calibre and sending it my Kindle 3, that all the Commas [ ' , ] are converted to a Question Mark [ ? ] with a "Box' around them" is there any way to fix or stop it from happening or is there another format compatible to my Kindle 3 that I should use Regards

If "curly quotes" are not appearing correctly, this indicates a character encoding issue. You need to ensure that the correct code page is specified.

Thanks Harry, but how and where do I do that? I know nothing about Codes or Character encoding! I am completely in the dark about that sort of stuff. Can you give more detail and describe how for me please
