Weirdest bug...thing ever...

It doesn't seem to be an image, and it doesn't seem to be text either, but this post has some kind of weird glyph floating above it:

    A what now?

    edit: Well I guess I feel semi-stupid? I guess? I'd never seen that before and it certainly looks like a glitch.

    Some languages have text formatting controls, which means the characters themselves can have properties that shift their positions or interfere with the formatting of previous or future text, so chaining interactive referential ones together results in massive formatting anomalies. It used to be that such errors would also break the formatting of the forum, but with the implementation of the new software, no major text input exploit has yet been found to reliably interfere with post formation.

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.
