Question Odd Characters When Sending .mobi to Kindle 3

I have an ebook that looks fine in Calibre and the Kindle viewer. No weird characters. When I send it to my K3, however, I get squares with question marks in them. These are not replacing any characters - sometimes before a comma, after a comma, or in the middle of a sentence.

Hopefully someone knows why this is happening and what I can do to fix it.

Thanks for the help!!
