    Strip all non-alpha chars:

    $out = ereg_replace("[^[:alpha:]]", "", $in);

    Strip non-alpha & non-numeric:

    $out = ereg_replace("[^[:alnum:]]", "", $in);

    From here.

    I have to do the same with my feeds; it’s the blasted registered trademarks and TM signs.

    Hyder I am not sure which ones you are loading but do a quick search for:

    I have question how do you display this character •

    When I use PHP to display it on monitor screen, it displays a square box, not the black dot as you see here.

    you get the bullet by holding down your alt key and typing 0149. (on the pc)

    There is a web site that has code references:

    http://www.december.com/html/spec/codes.html

    The "&#" -- I've found you can just hold down the alt key and type 0 in front of the code to get the symbol to work. Like the bullet ALT+0149

    Cheers
