When viewing Word's .mht files in Internet Explorer, we are having a problem with the "lesser than or equal to" symbol displaying as an "equal" symbol. The effects only certain computers with a variety of configurations including Windows XP and NT OS, IE 5.5 sp2 and 6.0.

When viewing the source in notepad, the charset=utf-8. We've used the web options in Word to specify that the encoding be Unicode (UTF-8). This specific symbol is listed as a Unicode symbol by Word, so we thought that setting the encoding in Word's Web Options would force the symbol to display correctly, but it hasn't been successful. We are looking into setting the encoding on the server hosting the document to try to force the clients to use it.

What's odd is that if, on a PC that has this problem, you right click the displayed .mht in IE and choose "User Defined" encoding, the symbol will display properly in most cases. Does anyone know what the story is behind "User Defined" encoding?
