Odd character/ symbol (–) replacing numbers in posts?

This character/ symbol "–" is showing up in various posts/ threads?

Whatever that symbol is it seems to be replacing / or getting substituted for actual numbers.

Do you see it too (asking just in case it's only showing up in my browsers - it's showing up in both Firefox and Chrome)

If you do see it too, does anybody know what this symbol is and why it's happening?

I definitely notice it while using Chrome. The Mark IIC explained thread is a bad culprit. I assumed it was a case of porting the forum to a new version at some point, and some of the character encoding went awry, since none of the newer posts seem to be affected.
