The • is a html escape character. It's another way of telling the browser I want to display something. Like /u0034 is an unicode char in some other language.
An example. I have a .php file and I want to explain to you how php works. I write that a php command starts with <?php. O dear. There's nothing on the screen because it took this sentence too literally and it really did expect a php command once I wrote <?php. I can circumvent this problem by escaping one of the characters, like <?php It will display <?php but not look at it as a starting command. In this case < represents <. Here is a [url=http://www.intuitive.com/coolweb/entities.html]full list[/url] of all entities.
The • is a black dot. Where is the black dot on your keyboard? It's not there? Then you want an escape character like •
I will come back to the "contact the admin" once I find the appropriate code (unless someone beats me to it).
