David, André,

Not a bad thought David, but I don't think I see a CSS in this URL.   
André, thanks for asking.  Here's the URL: Formative Assessment Item Bank/ELA  
NO 3rd Party Items/Grade 4 QTI/ELA G4 P1/passages/1000323.htm

If I use the RevBrowser library handlers to display it in an image I  
can then get the htmlText of the 'instance' using the RevBrowserGet()  
function.  That's where I get strange looking characters.  If I then  
set the htmlText of the same image using RevBrowserSet, passing the  
return I got from RevBrowserGet(), the display turns weird.  I'll  
include, below, a little bit of the weird return I get from the  
RevBrowserGet() function after displaying the above URL.
