What Causes this Corruption ?

My inbound Emails have corrupted fonts - what do you think causes this and how is it fixed?

They are like this -
Guidebook had said of Jossy’s: ‘It has a reputation for serving Bangalore’s intelligentsia.’. Perfect,
the parts of India we’ve seen
(I still haven’t found out why they call it ‘trekking’ instead of just, well, ‘walking’.)

All advice appreciated

I should have mentioned my system -
Windows 7 with Outlook express and IE8
Word 2007 set to English U.K.

"Windows 7 with Outlook express"

Nah, can't be Outlook express, check again.

I read somewhere that you can have Outlook Express if you use Office.
but then again I could be wrong.
Maybe he means Outlook.

Not so. Windows Mail only for Vista. Windows Live Mail in 7.

rdave13 - Yes, I stand corrected - must be bedtime!

Thanks Northumbria61 I followed the link and there are some leads to follow.
What is odd about the corruption is that the same email message arrives on another Win 7 PC here and it is all OK.
So a receiving PC can corrupt the fonts on an arriving email?

"So a receiving PC can corrupt the fonts on an arriving email?" Never had that problem myself but it would appear so.
