I'm trying to fixup a profile that shows "Nobody has entered any text or sources for William yet." However, when I go to edit the profile, it has a ton of sources and information. If I click preview, they all show up. What the heck is going on with this profile?

The Character 
U+FFFD (decimal 65533) is the "replacement character"
