Mobi files on Kindle 2

When I convert some books from html,pdf,epub to mobi, it looks perfect on the internal viewer in Calibre, but when I read it on my Kindle 2, quotation marks and apostrophes are replaced with a square box with a ? inside the box. Any suggestions for a fix? I hope this hasn't been asked before. Thanks

In the conversion settings under Look & Feel select the option "Transliterate unicode characters to ASCII"
