to be honest no idea. its some chinese character, I have no idea how the
user input this, because this is a japanese page.
I actually found the carachter, but only my Mac OS X can show it. It
looks similar to a japanese character used for a name, but how the
chinese one got selected is a mystery to me ...

well, the web page & data is in utf8 so I never see this issue, except I
would write a method that detects illegal shift_jis characters, and
The reporting is only done in CSV ... so I am not sure if it is worth to
waste too much time here.
thanks for the tip.
