    thanks, its working for me now.
    But still I have a doubt that why \uFFE2\uFF80\uFF93 is giving ndash in
    if you have any information on this, than pls let me know.

    U+2013 is the ndash (aEUR"). It is represented in UTF-8 by three
    hex bytes: E2 80 93.

    But, \uFFE2 is fullwidth pound sign
    \uFF80 is half width katakana letter ta
    and \uff93 is half width katakana letter mo.

    Perhaps the reason you see three question marks is that the font
    you are using doesn't support full width and half width characters.

    What happens if you replace your string \uFFE2\uFF80\uFF93 with
    \u2013 ?
