character map not working correctly

  machins 15:14 06 Dec 2005

Having recently had my computer 'repaired' all is well except when I use the character map. It shows the symbols I want - I select and copy OK - but when I paste into a document I get anything except the one I want. I am using XP SP2
I should know the answer to this but I cannot remeber. Any ideas please?
