Why does bullet convert to asterisk

I would think this would be a simple thing, but I want to put a bullet in text between phone number and email link:   phone • email 

 

However, no matter how I insert a bullet, either just by keying it in, or adding html in the code window it always changes to an asterisk when I send the email.

 

Anyone have any insight on this?

 

Thanks,

Re: Why does bullet convert to asterisk

Same frustrating problem here! Support helped me find the solution for this. The ampersand code · works. Unfortunately, you can only enter this in code view. I was able to export my HTML view to an HTML editor and FIND/REPLACE * to · then paste back into Constant Contact HTML editor. 

Constant Contact, it would be nice to have a find/replace function in the back end.

 

The · can be bolded.
