That sounds like the font. Is it doing it for every font or just the current one?

Those are commonly called "tofu boxes" and represent missing glyphs.  Basically, that's a "letter" that doesn't exist in the font you have selected AND you have Missing Glyph Protection turned off (found under Preferences > Type).

Hope that helps,
