Topic: "question marks " printed next to links on top of underneath posts

I updated Cutenews from an older version tot vesion 2.1.2 and since than are underneath each post a series of questionmarks printed:
- next to the link tot comments
- next to the backlink after visit to the complete post
- next to the"read more"-link underneath of a post
questionmarks-example

Can someone pleas advice me how to solve that?

Thanks
