ha ha, so last 2 attempts - via Notepad++ and then a code converter from utf-8 to ascii (thought I'd cracked it as the " inches symbol came up as different characters...

Pole Set (5x18 inches + inc.rear) Custom 3.9 CF Pole set - 73 gms

As the carbon fibre pole set aquisition would make a long tedious read I'll skip ahead... Suffice it to say that 5 x 18" poles work but there's an overall loss of height on the arch of around 1". The original alloy 13 section pole set comes with 5 prebent centre sections at around 180 gms. Makes a neat pocket-fitting affair (if you got big pockets...) but all those pole inserts add up. The 18" CF poles do protrude from the sack though, but if lightweight is the aim there is a price to be paid somewhere

*as previous - replacing inches symbols...

Whoah! Success - so through text code converter, which highlighted the " symbol, which may be the cause of the problem (or may not..?), and then removing the 2 symbols that the converter inserted instead seems to have made the difference.

Out of time again now though...

er, but than why aren't the other " symbols a problem..?
Could it be because the first was with UBB bold commands?
