Minor annoyance: funky symbols at top of page

My pages are loading just fine, but I have some weird symbols appearing at the top of the page:



Is it something to do with the HTML header information I am using? Here is the HTML header information I am using now:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head> <title>Customer_List</title> <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bluedream.css"> <style type="text/css"> table.pagnav {font-family:Verdana,Arial,sans-serif; } </style> </head> Thanks

Use
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
instead of
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
This solves the squiggly character() problem at the top of the page. You may have to start with a completely new page if those characters are already in the document.
