English translation:a problem with encryption?
Explanation:
when I look at the document I just see a tick symbol between parentheses - perhaps there is an encryption problem with your browser? otherwise I can't see any sense to it.

agree  Robin Levey: I also see a tick (check mark) - and it's no doubt a browser font problem (coding, not encryption...).

  -> thanks - and thanks for putting me right on the tech-speak!

agree  Sabine Akabayov, PhD: the font for the "3" symbol is Monotype Sorts, http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.asp?pid=205653 which has only symbols

  -> thanks

neutral  Bernhard Sulzer: which browser are you using, Lucy? And which encoding? Are you using a Mac or PC? just curious.// Windows-based I see a 3. It might only be a checkmark on a Mac? Maybe a problem/error with(in) the software that created the site. :-)

  -> hi Bernhard, am using a Mac with both Firefox and Safari. Encoding on Firefox set to Unicode UTF-8, Safari set to default, whatever that is!

agree  Ana Buhai: I too can see a check mark. I only see a 3 up top on the right side, highlighted which is probably a mistake. Does anyone see that 3?
