Inserting Note Macro to Confluence page will automatically produced character Â in the macro body. See this sample screen capture:


  1. Run encoding test to isolate character encoding problem.
  2. If the encoding test returned a successful test result, next check if your server is configured with proxy. If it is, bypass proxy and access Confluence directly via localhost:<port> or <IP>:<port>, temporarily update Confluence Admin > General Configuration > Base URL to this new URL and check again on the problem.


The problem is caused by a proxy configuration (URL rewriting causes the strange character).


Consult your System Administrator and re-configure the proxy setting.

(info) Proxy configuration (with URL rewriting) falls out of Atlassian Support Scope
