Sourav,

If you are getting a box and not a "?" then most likely it is a Font problem.  The box means that the Font does not have a glyph for the code point you are asking it to display.  The "?" means that the system was unsure how to convert the code point from one encoding to the internal encoding.

If you can show it at all, then it doesn't sound like a font issue. Do you get the same or different behavior with different browsers? Have you verified that the HTML (view/save source) is OK? A hex editor might come in handy to verify that...
