I have the following symbol showing up at the very top of my page above the header image. I'm using TopStyle 4.0 to preview the page.I have noted it does not show up when viewing in Explorer but does in Mozzila. Any assistance you might offer as to how to get rid of it or what it is would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Grey

It's the BOM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark), the culprit!
Either change the encoding of your file into ANSI or opt 'without BOM' when saving as UTF.
(Notepad++ has an easy interface to achieve this)

Please forgive my not knowing but can you please tell me where or how I change this page into an ANSI to fix this? Sorry very new at this.

Just strip first two bytes using any hex editor.
