Re: Chinese characters on site

Your website seem fine on my end. Do you know if those computers who see the problem have anything in common with each other? For example the same OS, the same web browser, etc. 


This may be an encoding with your files or databases if they are not using UTF 8.

I have seen this happen on some of my bootstrapped sites running glyphicons and it seems that there was an error loading the correct font file.


Can you check Google Chrome > (right-click) > Inspect Element when that happens to see if Google displays any errors?
