Something Strange

Hi all, just converted three text files to epub and something that I can not figure out has happened.

The original file is a text file and when converted to epub, question marks in little black diamonds have appeared in the text. It seems to be replacing quotes, full stops and other grammar but I have also noticed a few chunks of text, two or three letters go missing and such see below a sample

Original text block
The chime rang again.

The door slid to the side, and a female sailor stuck her head into the cabin. “Begging your pardon, Captain, but the XO says we’ve picked ’em up again,


Epub after conversion
The chime rang again. �Enter,� she said, her voice cracking badly. She had to repeat herself, after a cough. �Come in, please.� The door slid to the side, and a female sailor stuck her head into the cabin. �Begging your pardon, Captain, but the XO says we�ve picked �em up again.,

I reckon I have some setting set very wrong. Anyone seen this or know why.

Cheers Tony

Sorry, Solved it. Had to transliterate unicode characters to ascii. Missed that setting somehow.
