I think you are referring to a problem that seems to cause the acute accented e (é) in Hergé's name to be replaced by a different string of characters in places on the site - it doesn't happen everywhere, as I was able to copy and paste his name from the copyright text at the bottom of this page.

It's a technical error of some sort, and I am sure that Admin will fix it as soon as possible - if and when such a fix exists. :-)
